Candisyn dusting powder

Candisyn dusting powder


The primary ingredient of CANDISYNDusting Powder is itraconazole (1.0% w/w)


CANDISYN Dusting Powder, which is the brand name for itraconazole, effectively treats diaper rashes, tinea pedis, tinea cruris and other dermal fungal infections. CANDISYN dusting powder works as a desiccant; with its hygroscopic property, CANDISYN quickly absorbs moisture when applied to the surface area and keeps it dry for long hours. Some of the symptoms against which CANDISYN can be used are red or darkened skin, peeled skin, itching skin, and the appearance of small bumps on the surface area of the skin.

Mechanism of Action: Itraconazole works by blocking the fungal-mediated ergosterol synthesis by inhibiting lanosterol 14a-demethylase activity. Ergosterol is a key component of fungal cell membranes, whose synthesis when inhibited, can kill the fungal cells and prevent the fungal growth. Of all the major azole antifungal agents, itraconazole is said to be more effective against major fungal infections such as cryptococcosis, candidiasis, and aspergillosis.


CANDISYN dusting powder effectively treats most of the fungal skin infections. Its major indications include:

  • Diaper rashes in babies and elderly people
