Fluconazole is used to treat thrush infections. This medication may produce some mild side effects, but any serious ones are quite uncommon, making it a relatively safe way to treat thrush. Therefore, Fluconazole is available over the counter in the UK. Fluconazole is available from our UK registered online pharmacy following a simple Q&A consultation.
Thrush is a fungal infection that can appear on almost any part of the body. The fungal infection is contagious so it can spread across different areas. The thrush fungus thrives in warm moist conditions, so is particularly likely to present on the penis.
Fluconazole can cause temporary hormonal imbalances. These can lead to digestive issues within the body, creating a few minor side effects. The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, flatulence and diarrhoea. But the side effects should go away over time as your body adjusts to the medication. If you experience persistent or worsening symptoms, you should talk to your doctor about alternative thrush treatments.
Thrush is caused by fungi named Candida albicans. This fungus is initially present in a lot of people, and it does not affect or cause any trouble since its negative effects are regulated by the healthy bacteria and individual’s immune system. When the balance of the healthy bacteria is thrown off-charts, or when the immune system becomes compromised, this fungus can develop into an infection. For example, taking antibiotics can unbalance the bacteria in the body, making an individual more susceptible to a thrush infection.
There isn’t one type of thrush treatment that will work best for all the various types of thrush. That’s because this infection can manifest on many different parts of the body. For each one, the effect is a bit different, and the treatment needs to vary as well.
When thrush affects the genital regions, Fluconazole is usually recommended, but for other areas of infection, anti-fungal creams containing imidazole may be recommended. If symptoms do not resolve within 1-2 weeks, imidiazole will likely be replaced by Fluconazole.
