Miconazole is a synthetic imidazole antifungal agent with a broad spectrum of activity against the common dermatophytes and yeasts as well as an antibacterial activity against certain gram positive bacilli and cocci. It acts by inhibiting ergosterol biosynthesis in fungi and change in the lipid components in the membrane, resulting in fungal cell necrosis.
Each gram gel contains Miconazole BP 20 mg.
