Decozol general information

What is Decozol used for?

Decozol oral gel 2%is used to treat fungal infections in the mouth, throat and gastrointestinal tract, such as common dermatophytes (like tinea) and oral candidiasis (thrush) caused by the yeast candida.  Although Candida is normally present in the mouth it is kept under control by bacteria.  Under certain circumstances such as use of antibiotics, Candida growth becomes out of control and spreads through the mucosa of the mouth, forming white patches characteristic of oral candidiasis.   Decozol oral gel prevents spread of infection, which can lead to more serious and painful symptoms if it reaches the gastrointestinal tract.  Decozol oral gel is also effective against certain bacteria that may have infected the mouth and throat and can be used in children over 4 months old. 

How does Decozol work?

Decozol Oral Gel contains miconazole 2%, an antifungal drug, belonging to the imidazole group of antifungals.  Miconazole in Decozol oral gel is absorbed through the skin of the mouth as well as by the fungus growing on the moist mucosal membranes.  Miconazole in Decozol Oral Gel inhibits the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells; it also changes in the composition of the lipid components in the fungal cell membrane.  These actions of Miconazole in Decozol Oral Gel weaken the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out, which kills the fungus, preventing the infection from spreading and relieving symptoms caused by the infection, such as rash, itching, scaling and inflammation.  Miconazole in Decozol oral gel also has antibacterial action and kills certain bacteria that can cause infection in areas already infected by the yeast candida.
