If you get a fungal or a yeast infection, your doctor may prescribe a course of Diflucan to help clear it up. This effective antifungal antibiotic can combat a fungal or a yeast infection on many parts of the body. It is also used by people with weak immune systems due to AIDS and cancer, or by patients who have had a bone marrow transplant.
A common fungal infection is jock itch. Fungi start growing in the genital area of a male because of the moist conditions. Women can also get the same fungal infection although obviously it is not called jock itch. Any area of the body that is warm and moist allows fungus to thrive. You can prevent this by keeping these areas clean and as dry as possible.
