Introduction

Fluconazole is an antifungal. It can be used to treat fungal infections like a vaginal yeast infection or fungal skin infection. Consider using fluconazole to treat copious white vaginal discharge or a blotchy red rash in the groin or skin folds, both of which may indicate a fungal infection.

When to avoid

Avoid in bacterial infections, since fluconazole is used to treat fungal infections.

When is it dangerous

Avoid if allergic to fluconazole or other similar antifungal drugs. Fluconazole has been reported to cause serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), skin rashes, liver failure, heart arrhythmias (QT prolongation), and birth defects. Do not use if there is a history of cardiac arrhythmias, particularly QT prolongation, and do not use with other QT-prolonging drugs, like azithromycin.
