Thrush - a disease in which the fungus Candida affects the mucous membranes. In most cases, thrush occurs on the genital mucosa and oral cavity.

If the immune system is reduced, fungi Candida immediately penetrate the mucosa and cause a condition called thrush or candidiasis. Such a decrease in immunity is typical for pregnant women, people who have suffered a serious illness, suffering from some chronic disease with frequent exacerbations undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy, which reduce immunity.

A sign of thrush is the appearance of the mucous membranes of the external genitalia of redness, swelling and white raids cheesy consistency. If forcibly remove plaque under it would be a violation of a small surface of the mucous membrane - erosion. The main symptom of thrush - severe itching and a burning sensation in the genital area.

Cell membranes are critical for the survival of fungi - they prevent penetration into the cells of unwanted and potentially harmful substances and do not give the contents leak out of cells. Under the influence of fljukostat in cell membranes are formed holes, whereby cells die, and the infection is cured.

Flucostat used to treat a variety of fungal diseases, particularly those caused by fungi Candida and Cryptococcus families. It can be taken orally and intravenously, depending on the type and severity of the infection.
