Fluconazole 100mg Tablets

and Histoplasmosis. It is related to Ketoconazole, but is able to more
effectively cross the brain-blood barrier, making it more successful in treating
fungal infections of the central nervous system. Fluconazole is also effective
against ringworm [dermatophytosis], but is typically reserved for more serious
