What is Sporanox?
Sporanox is a medication prescribed to adults to treat fungal infections under your fingernails and toenails. Fungal nail infections begin when a fungus infects the tip of the sides of your nails. It can turn the nail yellow or brown in these places. The infection can progress and spread under your whole nail. This can discolor your nail, raise it up, and cause it to thicken or crumble. As well as being unsightly, this can cause discomfort and pain.
You take Sporanox either as a tablet or an oral solution (liquid) that you swallow, to fight the infection from the inside. Sporanox treats the fungal infection by stopping the fungi from developing properly, slowing the infection, and helping your immune system to clear it. It can take several months for you to see improvements in your nails, as it takes time for the infected nail to grow out and for a healthy nail to replace it.
Sporanox active ingredients
The active ingredient in Sporanox is called itraconazole. It’s an antifungal medication that kills a variety of different fungi. When you swallow Sporanox, the active ingredient itraconazole travels through your bloodstream to your infection. Itraconazole then kills the fungi infecting you. It does this by interrupting steps in the growth and development of the fungi, and by stopping it from producing a chemical (ergosterol) it needs to survive.
