Fluconazole is an antifungal medicine.
Fluconazole is used to treat infections caused by fungus, which can invade any part of the body including the mouth, throat, esophagus, lungs, bladder, genital area, and the blood. It is also used to prevent fungal infection in people who have a weak immune system caused by cancer treatment, bone marrow transplant, or diseases such as AIDS. It belongs to a class of drugs called azole antifungals. It works by stopping the growth of certain types of fungus.
