What is it prescribed for?
Blastomycosis is a fungal infection that can affect your lungs and also other parts of the body such as skin, bones, and joints. This condition is mostly asymptomatic (does not show symptoms) in the early stages, and when the infection becomes severe, it shows symptoms like night sweats, fever, cough, weight loss, chest pain, tiredness, etc. Itaspor 100 MG Capsule slows down the growth of this fungus and prevents it from spreading, thus it helps in treating the condition.
