Description

Bifonazole is an imidazole derivative with a broad antimycotic spectrum, which includes dermatophytes, yeasts, moulds and other fungi such as Malassezia furfur. It is also effective against Corynebacterium minutissimum.

Clotrimazole acts against fungi by inhibiting ergosterol synthesis. Inhibition of ergosterol synthesis leads to structural and functional impairment of the fungal cytoplasmic membrane. Clotrimazole has a broad antimycotic spectrum of action in vitro and in vivo, which includes dermatophytes, yeasts, moulds, etc.
