Luliconazole is indicated for the topical treatment of interdigital
- Tinea pedis (athelet's foot),
- Tinea cruris, and
- Tinea corporis.
Luliconazole is a topical antifungal agent. It is a broad-spectrum antifungal agent that belongs to the azole group. It acts against fungus by inhibiting the enzyme lanosterol demethylase and blocks ergosterol synthesis which is an important constituent of fungal cell membrane. Thus it exerts strong fungicidal activity both in-vitro and in-vivo against dermatophytes, Candida albicans, Malassezia spp, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton spp.
