What is the mechanism of action of clotrimazole or Lotrimin?

It is said that this antifungal drug is in the members of the azole drug group.

And it Prevents the division and growth of fungi.

Clotrimazole is considered to be a fungal growth retardant that is useful in treating infections caused by fungi and yeasts, including dermatophytosis, fungal infections of the skin and appendages, or ringworm of the scalp, skin, and beard.

We said that clotrimazole prevents the division and growth of fungi. It is interesting to know that this drug can also kill fungi depending on the amount you use.

This drug inhibits the production of fungal cell membrane fats called ergosterol.

With changes in the fungal membrane caused by the drug, the permeability of the membrane changes and vital and essential elements cannot enter the cell and thus the fungus cannot grow.

Clotrimazole can completely inhibit the production of fats such as triglycerides and phospholipids by fungi. In addition to these mechanisms, clotrimazole or lotrimin can also interfere with the oxidative and peroxidative activity of enzymes.

Disruption of the activity of oxidative and peroxidative enzymes in fungi increases the toxic concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in the fungus. Accumulation of hydrogen peroxide is toxic to cells, Thus, when they accumulate in the fungus, the intracellular organs are completely destroyed and the cell necrosis.

It is said that when this drug is used in some types of yeasts, it prevents the formation of active yeast micelles.
