Brief Answer:
Fluconazole lozenges

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

It depends how serious it is and also on your immune status. You can send pictures of it if possible, for better assessment.

Also you can share further details for a better assessment, like since when it started / any other medical illness / any other medications that you're taking apart from this / any history of smoking / alcohol consumption ?

As of now you can continue the medication, that you are on. Unfortunately here we can not write the prescription, you need to see a local doctor for prescription.

If it is persistent, use Fluconazole lozenges in consultation with your GP.

Hope this helps.

I'll be glad to address your further queries. Feel free to discuss..

Take care.
Regards

Brief Answer:
Less likely to have any adverse effect

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome back.

The lozenges are less likely to affect, but I would suggest you to watch for few symptoms and You should notify your doctor if you have symptoms such as drowsiness, visual disturbances, changes in behavior, nausea, or poor muscle coordination.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
