What is the meaning of Antifungals?

Antifungals are medications used to treat fungal infections. Fungal infections range from superficial skin and nail infections to more serious systemic infections that can affect internal organs. They can be administered topically, orally, or intravenously, depending on the type and severity of the infection.

Medication for fungal infections targets the fungal cells' structure, metabolism, or reproductive mechanisms, preventing their growth and reproduction. Antifungal treatments' scientifically proven effects include reducing the number of fungi in the body, alleviating symptoms associated with fungal infections, and preventing the spread of infection.

Common antifungal medications are used in various areas of medicine, including dermatology, gynecology, oncology, and critical care, and have been proven effective in treating a wide range of fungal infections. Antifungal medicines have also been used successfully in patients with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or undergoing chemotherapy.

What are Antifungals used for?

What are Antifungal Drugs used to treat?

Antifungals are used to treat fungal infections caused by yeasts, molds, and other types of fungus. Some common indications treated with antifungal medication are fungal nail infections, ringworm, and athlete's foot. Other fungal conditions include:

  • Candidiasis: A fungal infection caused by the Candida yeast, which affects different parts of the body, such as the mouth, throat, skin, and genital area.
  • Aspergillosis: A fungal infection caused by the Aspergillus fungus, which affects the lungs and other organs, especially in people with weakened immune systems.
  • Cryptococcal meningitis: A fungal infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord, which can be life-threatening.

What is the mechanism of common Antifungal Drugs?

Antifungals target the unique structure and metabolism of fungal cells. Fungal cells differ from human cells in several key ways, allowing antifungal medicines to selectively target them without harming human cells.

Some antifungal treatments work by inhibiting the synthesis of beta-glucan, weakening the fungal cell wall and making it more susceptible to damage. Others inhibit the synthesis of ergosterol, leading to disruption of the fungal cell membrane and eventual death of the cell. The choice of antifungal medication depends on the type of fungus being treated and the severity of the infection. Antifungals are used topically in form of antifungal creams and other agents for fungal infections localized on the skin, nails, and mucous membranes, while oral antifungals are indicated for more severe or systemic fungal infections and those affecting internal organs.

Types of Antifungals

Antifungals come in a large range as a result of the large variety of potential fungal infections. The following explains two of these types of treatments for fungal infections with details on what they target, and what they treat.

Antifungals for Dermatological Use

Antifungals for dermatological use are drugs that are specifically formulated to treat fungal infections of the skin, hair, and nails. These antifungal treatments disrupt the fungal cell wall or cell membrane, which is crucial for fungal survival, or inhibit fungal enzyme activity. These actions prevent the fungal cells from reproducing and eventually cause them to die off.

Common indications for these antifungals include treating ringworm, athlete's foot, and nail infections caused by fungi. Antifungal drugs for dermatological use are commonly administered topically in the form of antifungal creams, ointments, lotions and other solutions, or they may be taken orally for more severe cases.

Antifungals for Systemic Use

Antifungals for systemic use are a class of antifungals used to treat fungal infections that have spread to internal organs and tissues. They target various fungal cell components, such as cell wall synthesis, ergosterol synthesis, and microtubule function. By inhibiting these processes, antifungals disrupt the growth and replication of the fungus, leading to its death.

Common indications for these antifungal medicines include treatment of invasive candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, and aspergillosis. They may also be used prophylactically in patients with weakened immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplantation. These treatments for fungal infections are typically administered intravenously, as oral administration may not provide adequate bioavailability. However, some newer antifungal treatments are available in oral formulations, offering increased convenience and ease of administration.

Another way of dividing antifungal drugs in categories is by their classes.


Azoles are antifungals that inhibit the synthesis of ergosterol and thus block a critical step in the construction process of fungal cells, making them weak and unable to grow. Some common examples of azoles include ketoconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, and miconazole.


Polyenes are antifungals that act by binding to ergosterol in fungal cell membranes, causing their damage. Most widely used polyenes include amphotericin B, which is applied in cases of severe or systemic fungal infections, and nystatin, commonly employed for topical treatment of superficial fungal infections.


Allylamine antifungals function by inhibiting an enzyme called squalene epoxidase, which is responsible for the production of ergosterol, a crucial component of fungal cell membranes. Such intervention leads to a breakdown of fungal cell walls and to the eventual elimination of the fungal infection. Terbinafine is a commonly used allylamine antifungal.
