Pharmacological properties

Candid B is a combined antifungal drug for external use with an anti-inflammatory component. the pharmacological effect of the drug is due to the properties of clotrimazole and beclomethasone dipropionate, which are part of it. Clotrimazole is a broad-spectrum antifungal agent that belongs to the group of imidazole derivatives. Clotrimazole is susceptible to dermatophytes, yeast fungi (genus candida, torulopsis glabarata, rhodotorula), mold fungi, as well as pathogens of colorful lichen and erythrasma. in addition, clotrimazole is effective against gram-positive (staphylococci, streptococci) and gram-negative bacteria (bacteroides, gardnerella vaginalis), as well as against trichomonas vaginalis, malassezia furfur, corinebacterium minussimum. the effect of clotrimazole is associated with the ability to disrupt the synthesis of ergosterol, which is part of the cell membrane of fungi. as a result, the structure and properties of the membranes change, cell lysis is observed.

Beclomethasone dipropionate - a synthetic GCS - has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-exudative and antipruritic effects.
