Antifungal drug for external use from the group of allylamines.
The mechanism of action is associated with inhibition of the synthesis of squalene-2,3-epoxidase, which leads to a decrease in the formation of ergosterol, which is part of the cell wall of the fungus.
The drug is active against dermatophytes Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, Microsporum, yeast (Candida spp., Pityrosporum), mold fungi (Aspergillus spp.) And other fungi (Sporotrix schenckii).
With respect to dermatophytes and aspergillus, naphthyfine acts fungicidally. With regard to yeast fungi shows fungicidal or fungistatic activity, depending on the strain of the microorganism. The drug has antibacterial action against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, which can cause secondary bacterial infections.
The drug has an anti-inflammatory effect that contributes to the rapid disappearance of symptoms of inflammation, especially itching.
