Fluconazole is a generic medication similar to the Canesten oral tablet however at a much cheaper price. The amount of active ingredient Fluconazole present in the generic tablet is exactly the same as the branded version.
Fluconazole is used for vaginal thrush which has symptoms such as itching, soreness, vaginal discharge, and a stinging sensation when peeing.
How it works
Vaginal thrush is caused by the fungus Candida albicans, fluconazole is an antifungal agent which works by stopping the growth of candida.
What does thrush look like?
In women, thrush can cause swelling around the genitals with general irritation and itchiness. It can also cause a cottage-cheese like creamy white discharge from the vagina.
If men are affected, it usually presents as redness and irritation around the top of the penis, as well as discharge. For both sexes, the inflammation can lead to a burning sensation when urinating.
Why do some people get thrush and others don’t?
Candida albicans is the name of the yeast which causes thrush. It is found naturally in the body, meaning anyone can get thrush. The reason why it becomes activated for some and not others is not yet determined. Thrush can be more common in diabetics, pregnant women and those taking antibiotics.
Does my partner need treatment if I have been diagnosed with thrush?
Thrush is not an STI but can be passed on through intercourse with someone infected. It is common to see thrush being passed onto the partners of those with thrush and men do not necessarily have to show any symptoms for it. It is recommended for men and women who suffer from recurring thrush to also get their partner treated to eradicate the infection completely.
