  • Persistent infections with the fungus tinea (also called ringworm) in various parts of the body including the body (tinea corporis), foot (tinea pedis) and groin (tinea cruris or jock itch).

  • Infection of the nail (onychomycosis) with yeast or dermatophyte fungi like tinea.
  • Fungal keratitis, an infection of the cornea of the eye by mould fungi like aspergillus or the yeast Candida, resulting in inflammation.
  • Systemic fungal infections that can affect internal organs such as histoplasmosis a rare systemic fungal infection from inhalation of a soil fungus into the lung causing flu-like symptoms; also aspergillosis, a lung infection caused by breathing in spores of the mould fungus aspergillus.  These systemic fungal infections are more common in people who are immunocompromised.

How does Itrabond work?

Itrabond capsules 200mg contain itraconazole broad-spectrum antifungal drug belonging to the triazole group of antifungals.  Itraconazole in Itrabond capsules 200mg is a potent and specific inhibitor of fungal enzymes necessary for the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells.  A lack of ergosterol weakens the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out, which kills the fungus.  This prevents the infection from spreading, relieving symptoms caused by the infection, including, itching and inflammation.

What does Itrabond contain?

Itrabond capsules 200mg contain the active ingredient itraconazole a broad-spectrum antifungal drug, used to treat and prevent a variety of fungal infections. The capsules are comprised of hard gelatin and contain itraconazole pellets.

  • Persistent infections with the fungus tinea (also called ringworm) in various parts of the body including the body (tinea corporis), foot (tinea pedis) and groin (tinea cruris or jock itch).
  • Candidiasis (thrush) of the mucus membranes such as in the mouth and vagina, also of the skin.
  • Persistent infections of the vagina with the yeast candida (candidiasis).
  • Infection of the nail (onychomycosis) with yeast or dermatophyte fungi like tinea.
  • Fungal keratitis, an infection of the cornea of the eye by mould fungi like aspergillus or the yeast Candida, resulting in inflammation.
  • Systemic fungal infections that can affect internal organs such as histoplasmosis a rare systemic fungal infection from inhalation of a soil fungus into the lung causing flu-like symptoms; also aspergillosis, a lung infection caused by breathing in spores of the mould fungus Aspergillus.  These systemic fungal infections are more common in people who are immunocompromised.
