Clotrimazole cream is a broad-spectrum antifungal medication for topical application.
The antimycotic effect of Clotrimazole (an imidazole derivative) is caused by a violation of the synthesis of ergosterol, which is part of the cell membrane of fungi, which changes the membrane permeability and causes subsequent lysis of fungal cells.
In small concentrations Clotrimazole acts fungistatically, in large concentrations it is fungicidal, and it affects not only proliferating cells.
Clotrimazole cream is effective against dermatophytes, yeast-like and mold fungi, against causative agent of multi-colored lichen Pityriasis versicolor (Malazessia furfur) and the pathogen of erythrasma.
Clotrimazole cream has an antimicrobial effect against gram-positive (staphylococci, streptococci) and gram-negative bacteria (Bacteroides, Gardnerella vaginalis), as well as against Trichomonas vaginalis.
