Thank you for your query.

Itraconazole is an antifungal medicine. You have not mentioned the reason for the prescription of this medicine. Till knowing the reason for its prescription it is difficult to say which is better - this medicine or colostrum powder.

Colostrum powder is milk from colostrum and can be given with itraconazole.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your granddaughter an early recovery.
