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.

A rather unusual public-health initiative

"" is an interactive sex-education game produced by the Middlesex-London Health Unit, in Ontario, and it honestly has to be seen to be believed:


You can read other media's takes on the game -- and compare their censoring of the image -- in stories from the , the Globe and Mail and the .

Regardless of what you think of the public-health department's explicit approach, it's hard to deny that any game that asks you to choose to play as Wonder Vag, Willy the Kid, Power Pap or Captain Condom is bound to grab teens' attention.

Pharmacist prescribing prompts legal concerns

Do you need to adjust your practice to limit liability risk?


Physicians used to be the only people prescribing drugs to patients. Those days are long gone.

Over the last four years or so, in almost every province, limited prescribing and renewal authorities have been granted to other health workers, including pharmacists, nurse practitioners and even naturopaths.

The latest province to follow the trend is Ontario. Despite the Ontario Medical Association’s objections, work is now underway to permit pharmacists to extend, adapt and adjust prescriptions. New draft regulations will govern prescribing by nurses and naturopaths as well. British Columbia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick already have similar legislation, while Alberta pharmacists can become certified to initiate certain prescriptions. Nearly every other province is working on some variation of these ideas.

The decision to extend prescribing authority to non-doctors is a logical response to the growing queues of orphan patients, and to doctors’ clamouring about suffocating workloads. But the trend towards expanding prescribing authority introduces new liability issues for physicians.
