Fluconazole is an antifungal which is used to treat a number of conditions including thrush, jock itch, athletes foot and ringworm.
Fungal infections rarely clear up on their own. Leaving a fungal infection untreated can cause recurrent infections or increase the risk of the infection spreading to other parts of the body or other people.
In many cases, infections occur when natural fungi and yeasts overgrow. Other times, they can be contracted from other people with the infection or from surfaces contaminated with fungi or yeast. The latter is a common way in which athletes foot can spread.
Athletes foot can be passed on through the surfaces of changing rooms at community swimming pools or by sharing towels, socks or shoes with infected individuals.
Fungal infections, such as thrush, jock itch and athletes foot can spread from one part of the body to another. With the right conditions, athletes foot can be spread to the nails, resulting in a fungal nail infection.
Therefore, it is imperative to seek treatment for fungal infections.

Fluconazole acts directly upon the fungal cells to kill them.
Fungi and yeasts require ergosterol to survive, which they produce themselves. Fluconazole inhibits the organisms' ability to produce this substance. As a result, the membrane of the cell weakens and begins to break apart. The contents of the cell spills out and the cell dies.
