How does terbinafine work?

Terbinafine hydrochloride is an antifungal medicine that kills the fungi that are causing an infection. It does this by causing holes to develop in the fungal cell membranes.

The cell membranes of fungi are vital for their survival. They keep unwanted substances from entering the cells and stop the contents of the cells from leaking out. By causing holes to appear in the cell membranes, terbinafine kills the fungi and hence clears up the infection.
