Thanks for the query.

May I know the current weight of the child?

Fluconazole can be used in 6 to 12 mg/kg/day in pediatric patients with limited side effects.
I suppose the doctor has suspected a fungal infection for which he has advised the medication.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if there are other concerns.
