Mode of action:
How does the ingredient in the drug work?
The active ingredient damages the outer shell, the so-called cell membrane of fungi. This shell thus loses some of its functions, for example it becomes less permeable to nutrients - the cell starves, or cell components escape and the cell dissolves. Depending on the concentration of the active ingredient, the growth and reproduction of the fungi are inhibited or killed directly. The active ingredient is also effective against certain bacteria.
What speaks against an application?
- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
Which age group should be considered?
- Children and adolescents under the age of 18: The medicine may only be used after consulting a doctor or under medical supervision.
What about pregnancy and lactation?
- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: According to current knowledge, there are no indications that the drug should not be used during breast-feeding.
If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.

- burning or stinging of the skin
- reddening of the skin
If you notice any discomfort or changes during treatment, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
