Contain the active ingredient : Fluconazole which is a type of medicine called a triazole antifungal. It kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes.
Fluconazole works by stopping fungi and yeasts from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of their cell membranes. Fluconazole causes holes to appear in the cell membranes, which allows essential constituents of the fungal or yeast cells to leak out. This kills the fungi or yeast, which either clears up the infection or prevents it from developing.
Fluconazole is used to treat and prevent a number of different types of fungal and yeast infections, particularly those caused by Candida or Cryptococcus species of fungi.
