Antifungals are taken by people to treat different fungal infections that are commonly found on their skin, nails and hair. In general, the length of their treatment is based on a particular type of fungal infection and its severity.
Antifungal meds work by either preventing fungal cells from reproducing and growing or killing such cells by affecting special substances in their walls.
You can find them in a range of available types, but they all are used in a few ways based on a given fungal infection.
Some of their most common types include the following:
Topical medications applied to nails, hair and skin directly;
Oral antifungals that must be swallowed in their liquid, pill and capsule forms;
Intravenous types that are injected into the bloodstream of patients;
Intravenous pessaries that are soft and small pills inserted into the vagina and used to treat such medical conditions as vaginal thrush.
There are many popular antifungals in the modern market, both brand and generic, including miconazole, Fluconazole, clotrimazole, Terbinafine, econazole and others.
They all should be taken after examining your health condition and tolerance.
