What is Thrush Oral Capsules?
This Thrush Oral Capsule Containing Fluconazole is used for treating fungal infections such as thrush in men and women. It is an effective antifungal treatment that is taken orally. It contains the active ingredient Fluconazole which provides healing for genital thrush and infections of the vagina or penis.
What is Thrush?
Thrush is a yeast infection called Candida. This lives in your body without any adverse effect. However, if your natural pH balance in your vagina becomes upset, Candida can multiply and develop into a thrush.
How Does Thrush Oral Capsule Containing Fluconazole Work?
Fluconazole is designed to kill the fungi that cause thrush infections. It does this by making holes in the cell membranes. This causes the essential constituents of the fungal cells out and kills the fungi, clearing up the infection.
Thrush Oral Capsule Containing is an effective antifungal treatment.
What are the Symptoms of Thrush?
Thrush can manifest itself in several key symptoms such as:
Itching around the outside of the vagina
Redness or irritation of the penis or vagina
Stinging while urinating or during sex
A white, milky odourless discharge
How Does Thrush Oral Capsules Treat Thrust Symptoms?
The fluconazole works to kill the fungi, specifically Candida Albicans Fungi, that causes thrush. It does this by interfering with the membranes of these cells by preventing them from producing Ergosterol. This causes holes to appear, killing the fungi effectively and quickly.
