Could diflucan (fluconazole) be used for external yeast infections?

In brief: Maybe but .....

Diflucan (fluconazole) would not be the first choice and would only work if the infection were caused by a susceptible yeast infection.
Broad spectrum topicals like Clotrimazole would be the first choice.
