Generic Antifungals medications
Antifungal agents are a group of drugs used to treat infections caused by fungi.
Diseases caused by fungal infection may affect different parts of the body, so for different cases the patient should use different antifungal drugs. For example, treatment can be performed both on surface area (skin, nails, genitals), and internal organs (heart, lungs). Antifungal drugs affect the fungal cell wall, causing the cells to derive from the vital substance.
