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 is looking out for your health

A selection of our favourite Canadian health advisories issued over the last few days.

Solubilize, nebulize, die
When treating H1N1 flu patients, don't solubilize and then nebulize your powdered zanamivir (Relenza) and then put it in a ventilator. A pregnant woman died when the lactose in the powdered zanamivir combined with the liquid used to dissolve the powder and blocked her ventilator.

You'll need a miracle, inshallah
Muslim pilgrims should be vaccinated against influenza and other infectious diseases at least six weeks prior to the Hajj. The warning was issued four weeks before the beginning of the Hajj, which this year occurs November 25-30.

(But perhaps all is not lost. Some supremely strange Islamic websites interpret the word "ma'arej" from the Qu'ran to mean "wormholes" and assert that Mohammed and his angels may have used them to travel through time. So maybe you're not out of luck after all.)

"Consumable entertainment"
You may not be surprised to learn that consuming energy drinks called Mind Strike, Fearocity, Elixir of Tenacity and Power Pulse (right), made by a company called Chaotic Beverages, pose a health risk to children.

The company will certainly be shocked to hear this, considering the drinks were launched in Canada earlier this year in partnership with a company called 4Kids Entertainment, based on a children's card game (a 4-pack of the drinks came packaged with a set of the cards) and animated TV show, and were intended for children : "Fueled with natural energy from green tea extract, and loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and functional herbs, Chaotic Beverages offer kids a great tasting, healthier alternative, beverage that provides a convenient way to meet their hydration needs." (Functional herbs? Alternative to what? More convenient than, say, water? That sentence raises far more questions than it answers.)

The drinks' marketing consultants, U & Me Marketing, saw the product as so revolutionary that they invented a new classification to describe it: "Consumable Entertainment." Health Canada, it seems, wasn't amused.

    U & Me recalled all Chaotic drinks two weeks ago (Oct. 23, 2009) after we were advised that Health Canada had concerns about some ingredients in our products. We agreed to an immediate, voluntary recall, which resulted in the removal of all Chaotic drinks from store shelves in Canada between Oct 26-30.

    At the time of the recall, we had been approved by Health Canada for a site license and were in the process of applying for a Natural Health Product (NHP) certification.

    Chaotic drinks are made with 100 percent natural sugars, colours and flavours. They are a healthier beverage choice for consumers who seek a change from artificial alternatives. The Chaotic beverage is designed for the Chaotic card game players who know the characters on the cans, and understand the value of the interactive game play codes on each label.

    We regret any alarm this has caused with our customers and consumer base, and wish to assure everyone that we are taking the necessary steps to reformulate Chaotic beverage to the standards of Health Canada

    Please feel free to contact me with any further questions regarding this issue.
