|Drug Class: What is Grisactin and why is Grisactin prescribed?|
Grisactin belongs to the group of medicines called antifungals. Grisactin is used to treat fungus infections of the skin, hair, fingernails, and toenails. Grisactin may be taken alone or used along with medicines that are applied to the skin for fungus infections.

Grisactin is used to treat fungal infections of the skin, hair and nails. When given by mouth Grisactin concentrates itself in keratin, a protein which is present in all of these areas. Grisactin is thought to work by interfering with fungal cell growth and replication. Grisactin does not kill an established fungal infection but instead prevents infection of new keratin in these areas.
