Introduction

Clotrimazole has broad-spectrum antimycotic with fungicidal and trichomonacidal action. Clotrimazole acts reliably on dermatophytes, yeasts and other fungi; it is also effective against Trichomonas vaginalis and Gram-positive microorganisms (streptococci/ staphylococci) and Gram-negative microorganisms (bacteroides/ Haemophilus vaginalis).

Clotrimazole kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes. It is a broad spectrum antifungal and exhibits activity against Trichomonas, Staphylococci, Streptococci and Bacteroides. It works by stopping the production of ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes resulting in increased membrane permeability and leakage of essential constituents of the fungal cells.
