What is Fluconazole?
Fluconazole is used to treat a fungus infection called thrush. Thrush is a common yeast infection in women that shows itself through itching of the vagina and surrounding area, redness and swelling, soreness and a white non- smelling vaginal discharge.
It’s an infection that can be aggravated by sexual intercourse, although it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, it can sometimes be passed to your partner and this is known as penile thrush (for which Fluconazole can treat).
How does Fluconazole work?
Fluconazole works to treat thrush as it is an antifungal medication. It stops the growth of the yeast known as Candida and helps to restore the natural health of your genitals.
