What Azocan-P (Fluconazole) Is And What It Is Used For

Fluconazole, the active ingredient, belongs to a group of medicines called anti-fungal agents and is used to treat infections caused by fungi and yeasts. The most common cause of fungal infections is yeast called Candida.

Azocan-P is used to treat a fungal infection called vaginal thrush (in women) and associated candidal balanitis (in men).

What is vaginal thrush?

Vaginal thrush is caused by tiny yeast called Candida. Many women have the yeast living quite happily and problem-free within their bodies. However, the natural balance that keeps Candida under control can be upset by other factors, e.g. antibiotics, diabetes, poor general health, the Pill, or damage to vaginal tissues. Then the levels of yeast become too high and thrush develops. The most common symptoms are:

  • Itching around the outside of the vagina.
  • Soreness which becomes worse with rubbing and scratching. Also the salt in urine can sting the sore tissue.
  • A white, non-smelling discharge from the vagina.

Not every woman who has thrush will have all of these symptoms.

Some general advice to help stop thrush coming back:

  • Wash regularly, but do not wash and dry yourself too harshly.
  • Avoid tight clothing.
  • Wear cotton underwear and stockings rather than tights.
  • Avoid perfumed soaps, bath additives and vaginal deodorants.
  • Change your tampon frequently as a blood-soaked tampon can provide ideal conditions for yeast growth.

Sexual intercourse can damage delicate tissue and aggravate thrush. Vaginal thrush is not “VD”, but may be passed on to your partner through intercourse. If your attack of thrush was successfully treated, but keeps coming back, your partner may need to take Azocan-P (Fluconazole) himself. If you are unsure why your thrush keeps coming back, or are unsure if your partner has thrush, you or your partner should see a doctor.

What is candidal balanitis?

Candidal balanitis (penile thrush) is caused by yeast called Candida. Balanitis is the medical term used to describe inflammation of the end of the penis. The foreskin may also be inflamed.

Thrush can be passed on from your partner through sexual intercourse.

(Thrush is not “VD” – see “What is vaginal thrush?”). The most common symptoms are:

  • Soreness, redness and irritation of the penis.
  • Tightness of the foreskin.
  • A white, non-smelling discharge from the penis.
  • Not every man who has candidal balanitis will have all of these symptoms.
