Product information

Diflucan is a treatment for fungal infections marketed by Pfizer. The medication is a powder, which is mixed into a drinkable solution by a pharmacist. You can only buy Diflucan in the UK if you have a prescription for it. How often you take it will depend on the nature of your infection, as it has a wide range of applications.

  1. Reliable relief from infections
  2. Simple to take
  3. One-a-day administration

Fungal skin infections can appear in various places on the body. Common examples of this kind of illness include Athlete’s Foot, Jock Itch and Ringworm. They are all caused by a fungal imbalance or over-prominence of one type of fungi on the skin, but may have slightly different symptoms.

The most recognisable qualities of Athlete’s Foot are a rash between the toes. Patches of skin may also become dry, leading to a flaky or scaly quality. It can be passed from person to person through skin-to-skin contact or via indirect contact, such as shared towels or bed sheets. The condition develops on the feet as this area is ideal for certain types of fungi to grow.

Ringworm can be picked up from various sources, often through contact with animals. But it can also be transferred between people, again through either direct or indirect means. Symptoms manifest in the form of raised rings on the skin, which may appear on the face, neck or hands, and be inflamed and itchy. Jock-itch is a similar condition, which affects the groin and upper thighs, and can be exacerbated by tight clothing and exercise; which can produce excess sweat and moisture and allow fungus to grow.

When treating the condition, a doctor may issue an antifungal, such as Diflucan, to clear up the infection. The active ingredient in this medication is fluconazole, which works by compromising fungal cell structure. It does this by reducing their capability to produce a self-sustaining chemical called ergosterol, which it needs to maintain cell integrity. Without it, the fungal cells become weaker, and their contents escape, leading the fungi to deplete in number. Symptoms clear up when fungal balance is restored.

Purchasing antifungal treatment is simple with our online service. Just take our health assessment, and once your responses have been checked and approved, our doctor will generate a prescription for you. This is then sent direct to our UK dispensing pharmacy, who will issue your order and ship it to you via express parcel. We use secure, unmarked packaging to deliver all items, so that your privacy is guaranteed, from consultation to receiving your product.
