When suffering with a yeast infection it is easy to go to the doctor and get prescription medication.
One of the most common medicines prescribed to treat Candidiasis is Diflucan (fluconazole) which is an anti-fungal. Most people take medication without considering what the medicine is or what the side effects could be. This article gives insight on what exactly Diflucan is, how it kills Candida and what are the common side effects from taking it.
Diflucan is made from using the chemical fluconazole. basically it is a chemical that interferes with the production of the cell membranes in the Canidida cells, therefore, preventing them from multiplying and growing. Although fungal cells are more sensitive to this chemical, our cells can be harmed by fluconazole as well.
So basically you are putting poison into your body, but it kills yeast cells quicker and in lower concentrations than it can kill human cells.
Some people have allergies to Diflucan and other anti-fungals which can cause severe reactions if this is the case. Other serious side effects include the following;
loss of appetite
jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
severe blistering, peeling, itching, and red skin rash;
easy bruising or bleeding,
unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth
Although Diflucan is an effective treatment to cure Candida overgrowth it still raises concerns because of the serious side effects that can result. If you can cure Candida by natural methods it would by all means be a healthier option for your body. Doctors often don’t consider natural remedies for yeast infections and easily prescribe these poison based drugs. It would be wise to consider all options and only use Diflucan in extreme cases.
