It does not. I am: Regular user to "clean" my mouth by gargling, and advocate for patients undergoing XRT to head and neck -- it bubbles and dislodges superficial debris but does not clear fungi that reside there...Need Diflucan (fluconazole) for that.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
