About Ceastra 100mg Ir Capsule 10's

Ceastra 100mg Ir Capsule 10's belongs to a class of drugs called antifungals used to treat various fungal and yeast infections of skin, mouth, nails, hands, feet, digestive tract, throat, vagina and other parts of the body. Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the tissue and cause infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another). Yeast infection is caused by a type of fungus called candida and commonly occurs in moist and warm areas of the body.

The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stops the leakage of cell contents. Ceastra 100mg Ir Capsule 10's works by inhibiting the production of ergosterol (a main component of cell membranes of fungi). Thereby, weakens and damages the fungal cell membranes causing the main components of fungal cells to leak out. Thus, kills fungi and clears the fungal infection.
