Fluconazole 150mg capsule is a treatment which can be used for vaginal thrush (Candidal vaginitis), thrush affecting the penis (Candidal balanitis), and other kinds of thrush throughout the body. It belongs to a class of drugs called azole antifungals and works by stopping the growth of certain types of fungus. This means that Fluconazole eases thrush by targeting the source of infection, working quickly and effectively to provide relief.
Thrush has a number of common symptoms that you may notice if you are suffering from this condition. Some of the most common symptoms of thrush include:
Vaginal thrush is the common term for infections of the vagina with Candida species of fungi, in particular, Candida albicans. This infection causes inflammation and discharge of the vagina. In men, it causes soreness and redness of the penis, tightness of the foreskin, or a white, odourless discharge.
Fluconazole kills the Candida fungi causing the thrush infection by interfering with their cell membranes. It works by stopping the fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes. The disruption in production of ergosterol causes holes to appear in the fungal cell membrane.
If you find yourself having reoccurring symptoms of thrush, you should always make an appointment with your doctor to confirm that it is the case.
It can come in handy to buy the Fluconazole triple pack if thrush continues to come back, even though you have taken the medicine previously, it can save time and money. If you and your partner keep passing thrush to one another during intercourse, then you could choose to use this triple pack to help to treat both of you at the same time.
Thrush is caused when the delicate balance between the good bacteria and natural yeasts that live in the body is disrupted. This can happen for a number of reasons, including:
