INTRODUCTION

ZOCON contains Fluconazole which belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. It is used to treat the infections caused by fungi and soothes irritated skin and relieves the fungal itch. It may also be used to stop you from getting a candidal infection. The most common cause of the fungal infection is a yeast called Candida.

Vaginal candidiasis is an infection of vagina, commonly called a “vaginal yeast infection.” It can develop severe infections involving redness, swelling, and cracks in the wall of the vagina. Penile thrush is an overgrowth of a yeast-like fungus in the penis of men, Candida albicans. It usually affects the head of the penis, with symptoms being similar to those of vaginal thrush. ZOCON works by stopping fungi and yeasts from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of their cell membranes. This causes holes to appear in cell membranes, which allows essential constituents of the fungal or yeast cells to leak out.

Apply the powder onto to the affected area or as directed by physician. If you apply more of this medicine, wash the area with plenty of water. It is recommended for the use in children and adolescents as advised by a doctor. Do not use ZOCON if you are allergic to this medicine. It is not recommended for use in the pregnant or breastfeeding women. Consult your doctor before using this medicine. Tell your doctor if you are using any of the other topical medicines. The most common side effects include skin irritation, redness or itching at the site of application.
