Clotrimazole is a broad spectrum antifungal. It also exhibits activity against Trichomonus, Staphylococci, Streptococci and Bacteroides. Clotrimazole kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes. It works by stopping the production of ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes resulting in increased membrane permeability and leakage of essential constituents of the fungal cells.
