Mechanism of Action :

Ketoconazole: It is an antifungal medication that works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, a key component of fungal cell membranes. By disrupting fungal cell membrane integrity, ketoconazole prevents the growth and replication of fungal organisms, ultimately leading to their eradication. Cetrimide: It is a quaternary ammonium compound with antiseptic properties. Cetrimide acts by disrupting the cell membranes of microorganisms, leading to their destruction. It may also help in preventing secondary bacterial infections associated with fungal skin infection
