Clinical pharmacology of tydineal- how it works.
Ketoconazole is a broad spectrum anti fungal agent that acts on the cell membranes of fungi by changing its permeability. Pharmacological studies have shown that ketoconazole has extremely potent antimycotic actions against dermatophytes (such as Trichophyton sp., Microsporom sp., and epidermophyton sp.), saccharomyces and candida albicans. Strains of fungi are unlikely to have a natural resistance to ketoconazole. clobetasol is a cortex hormone that is highly effective against Gram positive and gram negative bacteria. As a result, this combination of tydineal cream is highly effective against fungi, bacteria, inflammation and pruritus (itching).
