Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Brown spots could be due to pityriasis versicolor which is a superficial fungal infection of the skin.

Fluconazole is an antifungal drug. Yes, she can take this tablet. This tablet can have side effects.

I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
