About Atfine Cream 30 gm

Atfine Cream 30 gm belongs to a class of drugs called 'antifungal' primarily used to treat fungal nail infections. Fungal infection occurs when a fungus invades and affects the tissue on the skin.  Symptoms of a fungal infection include skin rash, irritation, redness, and scaling of the skin.  

Atfine Cream 30 gm contains 'Amorolfine' that works by stopping producing a chemical called 'ergosterol' in fungi that causes nail infection. Without ergosterol, the fungus cannot survive. As a result, infection-causing fungi die. 

Use Atfine Cream 30 gm as suggested by your doctor. Common side effects of Atfine Cream 30 gm may include dry skin, itching, redness, or burning sensation of the skin. Most of these side effects of Atfine Cream 30 gm do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Medicinal Benefits

Atfine Cream 30 gm is an antifungal that is primarily used to treat fungal infections of nails and skin such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot, seborrheic dermatitis (dry, flaky skin on face, scalp, chest, upper back, or ears) and pityriasis (a type of skin rash that causes scaly, discoloured patches on chest, back, legs and arms). The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent unwanted substances into the cells and stop the leakage of cell contents. Atfine Cream 30 gm causes holes in the fungal cell membranes and kills fungi. Thereby, clears fungal infection and provides relief from cracking, burning, scaling and itching of the skin caused due to infections.
