Diflucan is an antibiotic 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 works by altering the membrane around the fungus, therefore killing the fungus without harming your body’s cells.
It is also used to prevent fungal infection in people with weak immune systems caused by cancer treatment, bone marrow transplant, or diseases such as AIDS.
