Were you looking for information about Diflucan? Dyflucan is a common misspelling of Diflucan.
Various types of fungal infections can be treated with the prescription medicine Diflucan® (fluconazole). The medication can also be used to prevent these infections in people who are undergoing bone marrow transplants. Diflucan works to inhibit fungal growth by limiting the production of ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell membrane. Unlike most other yeast infection medications, this drug is not used vaginally; instead, it is either taken orally or administered by injection.
