How does the ingredient of the drug work? You can read about it here: https://pillintrip.com/medicine/fungoral. The active ingredient damages the outer shell, the so-called cell membrane of fungi. This envelope thus loses some of its functions, becoming more impermeable to nutrients, for example – the cell starves. Depending on the concentration of the active ingredient, the fungi are thus inhibited in their growth and reproduction, or they die directly due to additional damage to the cell interior.
