Exelderm Cream Description

Exelderm Cream is a prescription strength antifungal medicine that is applied to your skin to treat ringworm, athlete’s foot, jock itch, vaginal thrush, and tinea versicolor. The latter is a rash caused by the Pityrosporum ovale fungus that usually affects your arms, shoulders, neck, face, and trunk of your body, but it can develop anywhere on your skin. The tinea group of fungi are the most commonly found group of fungi that can thrive on our skin and can cause infections, including ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch, while vaginal thrush is from Candida albicans fungi.

How Exelderm Cream Acts to Stop Fungal Infections

The active ingredient of Exelderm Cream is called Sulconazole. Once you have applied Exelderm Cream as instructed, it is absorbed into your skin cells affected by the fungal infection and interferes with a certain enzyme (14α-demethylase) so it cannot produce ergosterol, an essential part of fungal plasma membranes. Without ergosterol, the structure and functions of the fungal membrane are disrupted in such a way that the contents leak out and other substances can enter. The end result is the fungi not being able to grow and multiply so they die off.

Conditions Treated by Exelderm Cream

Ringworm of the body is also called tinea corporis, and it involves a group of fungi called dermatophytes that feed off of tissue found in your nails, skin, and hair called keratin. Ringworm does not involve a worm at all but is named for the shape it takes, a circular raised red rash, sort of like a curled up worm with unaffected skin in the center. This is a highly contagious fungal infection that can be passed on through direct skin contact with: infected person; indirect contact by handling any objects that an infected person has handled; direct contact with an infected pet or animal, such as a dog, cat, horse, ferret, or rabbit; and rarely from contact with highly infected soil.

Athlete’s foot is mildly contagious and can be passed on through direct contact with the infection or through infected skin particles on towels, shoes, and floors. Jock itch, in most cases, is not contagious but can be passed on through sexual contact or other close skin contact. Vaginal thrush is a yeast infection caused by the Candida albicans fungi. This type of infections is not usually looked upon as a sexually transmitted disease, but it may be passed on through sexual contact. Tinea versicolor is not contagious.

Before You Apply Exelderm Cream

Ask your doctor if Exelderm Cream is safe to use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant during treatment, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor before starting treatment with Exelderm Cream to avoid any possible negative interactions. There is very little risk, if any at all, that Exelderm Cream will interact with any OTC, herbal, or vitamin supplements, or Rx drugs that you are currently taking.

Exelderm Cream Precautions and Proper Use

Exelderm Cream is for external use only. Wash the affected area with soap and water and dry thoroughly before applying Exelderm Cream. Try to avoid applying to any skin that is not affected as it may cause burning. Wash your hands after applying Exelderm Cream and do not share wash cloths or towels with anyone else so you will not pass the infection on. Keep all meds out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
