Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include:
Some patients, especially those with already weakened immune systems, may be prescribed an antifungal medication. Drugs include fluconazole, itraconazole, or amphotericin B. These medications can only help manage the fungus, but do not kill it. A recurrence of valley fever can occur.
Bed Rest and Fluids
Many patients with valley fever don’t require treatment with medications, and the infection will clear up on its own. Bed rest and drinking plenty of fluids will speed recovery.
