@baymax Sir, What are the drugs for treating yeast infections ?

There are many drugs that can be used to treat yeast infections, including:

1.Nystatin tablets: It has a broad-spectrum anti-fungal effect and can combine with the sterols on the fungal cell membrane, causing a change in the permeability of the cell membrane and leakage of important cell contents to exert an anti-fungal effect, mainly used to treat gastrointestinal candidiasis.

2.Itraconazole: It can specifically interfere with the early biosynthesis of fungal sterols, selectively inhibiting the activity of fungal squalene cyclase, so that the squalene epoxidation reaction in the process of fungal cell membrane formation is blocked, thereby achieving an anti-fungal effect.

3.Fluconazole: It is an anti-fungal drug that can inhibit the synthesis of fungal cell membrane, thereby exerting an anti-fungal effect.

4.Terbinafine tablets: It can specifically interfere with the early biosynthesis of fungal sterols and inhibit the activity of fungal squalene cyclase, blocking the squalene epoxidation reaction in the process of fungal cell membrane formation, thereby achieving an anti-fungal effect.

5.Flucytosine injection: It is an anti-fungal drug that has high antibacterial activity against Candida spp., Cryptococcus neoformans, and other fungi. It is commonly used for treating candidal endocarditis, cryptococcosis meningitis, systemic candidiasis or cryptococcosis fungemia, pulmonary infections, and urinary tract infections.
