There are many kinds of fungal infection, so it follows that there are different medicines to treat those various infections.
Many fungal infections are caused by the candida fungus; candida is responsible for athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, jock itch, nappy (diaper) rash, and oral thrush. Fluconazole is the active ingredient in many antifungal medications, which come as tablets or topical treatments such as sprays and creams. Fluconazole, though, comes in a capsule which you should swallow with water.
