Mechanism of Action
Ketoconazole kills fungi and yeastby interfering with their cell wall. It works by impairing the synthesis of ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell wall. The disruption in the production of ergosterol causes holes to appear in the fungal cell wall. They keep unwanted substances from entering the cells and stops the content of the cells from leaking out. This eliminates the fungi and clears up the infection. Ketomac, the ketoconazole cream for face thus works effectively in this way.
