What is Fluconazole Fungal Infection Capsule?
This medicine contains Fluconazole, which belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. These act to treat infections caused by fungi.
The medicine can be used to treat thrush (vaginal candidiasis). It may also be used by the woman’s sexual partner to treat associated penile thrush (candidal balanitis).
Thrush is a common infection caused by a yeast (or fungus), which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it.
However, in certain circumstances, it may develop into an infection in the vagina and symptoms may spread to the surrounding area. The symptoms may include one or more of the following:
- Itching of the vagina and surrounding area (the vulva)
- Redness and swelling of the tissues of the vagina and vulva
- Soreness of the vagina and vulva
- White non-smelling discharge from the vagina
Thrush may be aggravated by sexual intercourse, but it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, sometimes thrush can be passed to your partner through sexual intercourse.
If your partner has penile thrush, he may have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Soreness and redness of the penis
- Tightness of the foreskin
- A white non-smelling penile discharge
