Dr. Ajay Kumar MBBS, MD , General Physician

Question over 5 years ago

How does Sertakon work?

Dr. Ramraj Meena MBBS , General Physician

Sertakon contains sertaconazole which is an antifungal agent that works by preventing the synthesis of ergosterol (a component of the cell membrane of fungi). In the absence of ergosterol fungal cell wall is damaged that results in an increase in permeability of fungal cell wall this causes leakage of nutrients which kills the fungi. In this way, Sertakon inhibits the fungal growth and treats fungal infection.
