Frequently Asked Questions

What is Diflucan? 

Diflucan is an antifungal medicine which can help treat thrush, a common fungal infection. Symptoms which may indicate a thrush infection include itchiness, redness, swelling, soreness, as well as a white odourless vaginal discharge in women. In men, white residue in the penis is also very common. 

Diflucan tablets are sold as 150mg single-dose tablets. 

Sexual intercourse can aggravate a thrush infection. However, it is not considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Still, you can pass on the infection to your partner through penile or vaginal thrush. 

What causes Thrush? 

Thrush symptoms occur when the natural balance of vaginal bacteria is disrupted. Several factors may affect this balance such as certain medicines including antibiotics, artificially scented soaps and shower gels, tight clothing, tampons, as well as several conditions such as pregnancy, menopause, menstruation and stress. 

How does Diflucan work? 

Diflucan is an antifungal medication that treats the thrush by preventing Candida yeast from reproducing. The treatment also helps bring the healthy and natural bacterial balance in the vagina.

What are the benefits of taking Diflucan tablets? 

Having a thrush infection can make you uncomfortable due to the pain and irritation in the affected area. Diflucan provides a quick and effective solution and helps relieve the symptoms associated with the infection. 

Who can use Diflucan? 

Adults diagnosed with a fungal infection can take Diflucan. In some cases, children may also use the treatment if instructed by a medical professional. Make sure you have a doctor diagnose the issue before taking this medication to make sure you are getting the right treatment for the particular kind of fungus causing your symptoms.

Those with a weakened immune system should take Diflucan to prevent getting a fungal infection.
