Why Use Fluconazole Treatment

One of the nastiest types of infection is fungal infection.  Although they are more likely to grow on the skin, there are more serious ones though that develops in the respiratory system and infect not just the lungs, but also the blood and other parts of the body’s internal structure.  When you develop a fungal infection, it is vital that you treat the infection as soon as possible to prevent further growth, development, and spread of the infection.  Failure to do so may mean longer and costlier treatment.  Fluconazole treatment is needed for treating fungal infection.  Fluconazole treatment is an antifungal medication treatment that you take orally.

Most antifungals are applied on the skin directly to where the infection has developed.  However, if the infection has buried further or deeper in to the skin, or the infection has developed inside of the body, such topical type of antifungal will not work on such.  For cases like this, fluconazole treatment is necessary as fluconazole treatment comes in pill form which you take orally.  The treatment process in using fluconazole treatment is the purging of the infection from the inside of your body.  This effectively gets rid of the infection from your system.

For antifungal fluconazole treatment, it is necessary that you use fluconazole treatment for a course of several days.  The number of days you need to use fluconazole treatment depends on the type of infection that you have developed and the severity that it has.  Course treatment is necessary in completely getting rid of an infection from the body.  This is the very reason why doctors prescribe patients with several days of use of fluconazole treatment when they have a fungal infection.  By completing the course of fluconazole treatment, you will be able to completely purge the fungal infection out of the body.

Canada approves H1N1 flu vaccine

Arepanrix, GlaxoSmithKline's vaccine against the pandemic H1N1 flu, was today given Health Canada's stamp of approval. "This is a milestone in our efforts to fight the pandemic H1N1 flu virus," Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said in a statement. "Thanks to careful planning we now have a safe and effective vaccine being distributed to provinces and territories that they will be rolling out in a matter of days."

The Public Health Agency of Canada's vaccination recommendations are as follows:

  • All Canadians 10 years of age and older should receive one dose of adjuvanted vaccine;
  • Children from six months and up to 10 years of age should receive the adjuvanted vaccine in two half-doses, administered at least 21 days apart;
  • Children age 0-6 months – immunization not authorized; and
  • Pregnant women should receive one dose of the unadjuvanted vaccine, of which Canada has ordered 1.8 million doses. In cases where the unadjuvanted vaccine is unavailable and pandemic H1N1 flu rates are high or increasing in the community, women more than 20 weeks pregnant should be offered one dose of the adjuvanted vaccine.
The unadjuvanted version of the vaccine is supposed to be available within a couple of weeks.

    MediaCurves.com conducted a study among 300 Americans viewing a clip of the assistant surgeon general addressing concerns about the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines. Results found that parents with children under the age of 18 are more likely to have them vaccinated against the H1N1 virus after viewing a message from the assistant surgeon general. The majority of respondents (70%) reported that they are confident that the H1N1 vaccine is successful in preventing the H1N1 flu.
