What is Sertaconazole Nitrate 2% Cream Sertafix®

Sertafix® Cream contains sertaconazole, an antifungal that is used to treat fungal infections of the skin, caused by the dermatophyte fungus Tinea. Side effects were rarely reported with sertaconazole therapy, but may include contact dermatitis, burning on application site and skin dryness.

Sertaconazole Nitrate 2% Cream Sertafix® is used as a topical treatment for fungal infections of the skin, due to the Tinea fungus in immunocompetent individuals. Tinea is a dermatophyte fungus also known as ringworm that causes fungal infection in different parts of the body including ringworm of the foot, also known as Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), of the body (tinea corporis), of the groin (tinea cruris or jock itch), and of the scalp (tinea capitis). Symptoms of athlete’s foot, named because it is common in people active in sport, include red, inflamed and itchy skin and if the fungus spreads between the toes, it causes the skin to become cracked and peeling which can make the skin raw and painful. Sertaconazole Nitrate 2% Cream Sertafix® relieves symptoms of fungal infection, including pain and inflammation.

How does Sertaconazole 2% Cream work?

Cream Sertafix® contains sertaconazole two percent, a synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal belonging to the imidazole class of antifungals that is used to treat fungal infections of the skin1. Sertaconazole in Sertafix® cream prevents the growth of dermatophyte fungi by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell membranes that is not found in animal cells. This results in altering the permeability of the fungal cell membrane causing it to become weakened, so that the cell contents leak out, which kills the fungus. It is also thought that sertaconazole in Setafix Cream helps form pores in the fungal cell membrane which also contributes to making the membrane leaky. These actions of sertaconazole in Sertafix® cream prevent the infection from spreading and relieve symptoms caused by the fungal infection, including pain and inflammation.

    Used it for the treatment of tinea pedis, worked flawlessly, the parcel is stuck so I had to reach the okdermo to reship me one more for free. They did but a lot of time was lost.

    I’m a dermatologist and using sertaconazole for many years as well as prescribe to my patients. Sertaconazole nitrate cream is an effective option for the treatment of Athlete’s foot – is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tightfitting shoes. Signs and symptoms of an athlete’s foot include a scaly rash that usually causes itching, stinging, and burning. 4 stars for a long delivery time frame.
