Yes - Antibiotic SEs: It certainly can. If you can get some fluconazole that should wipe it out. Generally we start with 200 mg on the first day (2 pills of 100mg), then 100 mg pills once a day for a week to 13 days more. That should wipe it out easily. Show it to a doc if you have concerns. If you're on other meds you should check with a doc too about drug interactions with fluconazole.
