Ancobon is an antifungal medication, which helps in treatment of severe fungal infections. It is not precisely known how it works, but it slows the growth of certain fungus. Fungal infections are caused by invasion of tissue by the fungi microbes and they may be divided into superficial and localized skin condition or deeper tissue infection. At times, when fungal spores enter the body, the infection may occur in lungs, blood, heart, and other organs and systems resulting in septicemia or systemic diseases. Ancobon is like antibiotics but is used in treating fungal infections.
