Fluocinolone Acetonide is a mild topical steroid, which reduces redness and itching of the skin. Miconazole is an imidazole antifungal agent.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Fluocinolone Acetonide absorbs into the skin cells and stops the production of chemicals that cause inflammation. This reduces the symptoms of swelling, itching and redness that are associated with inflammatory skin conditions & it also inhibits biosynthesis of ergosterol, damaging the fungal cell wall membrane, which increases permeability causing leakage of nutrients. It kills bacteria by interfering with the enzymes that cause DNA to unwind and duplicate. Miconazole works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, a critical component of fungal cell membranes.
It is used for the treatment of inflamed conditions of the skin such as eczema and dermatitis which may be caused by infection with certain fungi and bacteria. It is effective in the relief of inflammatory and pruritic dermatoses. It is also used to treat the itching, redness, crusting, scaling, inflammation and discomfort of various skin conditions.
