    USES OF CLOCIP

    • Treats fungal skin infections such as athlete’s foot, tinea cruris, ringworm, tinea versicolor and diaper rash

     

    HOW CLOCIP WORKS

    Clotrimazole exerts its antifungal activity by inhibiting the biosynthesis of ergosterol, an essential constituent of fungal cell membrane which helps to keep the fungal cell intact and directly promotes its growth. Inhibition of ergosterol biosynthesis damages the fungal cell integrity and leads to the inhibition of fungal growth.
