They are afraid of contamination on clothes, which are also visible from the outside in the worst case. This is eliminated using Diflucan. The tablet has one more advantage.

How does the drug work?
Fluconazole is considered extremely effective against fungal infections, especially if the infection was caused by Candida fungus and affects mainly the skin, in rare cases, internal organs. Almost always the pathogen nests in the mucous membranes, preferably in a poor immune situation due to stress or underlying diseases.
Fluconazole is an active substance that is also used prophylactically in hospitals for patients at increased risk under the supervision of a physician. Its good compatibility is also due to the effect. Fluconazole attacks the building block of ergosterol. It is a substance that is vital for the fungus, as it provides stability, as well as permeability of the cell membrane.
Fluconazole starts right there. The fungus loses its protection and is therefore vulnerable to the body's natural defenses. That's why the tool is considered compatible. Thus, Fluconazole supports the immune system where necessary. This is also not a prerequisite for treatment, when the fungal disease has already completely erupted and can announce complications.
In particular, female patients who are particularly susceptible to fungal attacks due to an unstable immune system or fluctuations in the hormonal situation may therefore turn to Diflucan at the first sign. First improvements can be made after 24 hours. Repeated consumption is usually not required. ,
Theoretically, however, simultaneous local treatment is possible, since it can be recommended for very serious infection. Affected patients should observe the affected areas for several days, even if the symptoms improve.
