PHARMACOLOGY:

Fenticonazole is an imidazole antifungal, active against a range of

organisms including dermatophyte pathogens, Malassezia furfur (Tinea

versicolor) and Candida albicans.

It inhibits the production of a chemical called ergosterol, which is a

component of the fungal cell membrane. Damage to this membrane

cannot be repaired and this interferes with the fungal cell's ability to

reproduce, hence the infection is controlled.

INDICATION:

Treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis.
