How it works
Mometasone works by decreasing the formation, release, and movement of certain substances that cause swelling of the internal organs as well as external swelling and irritation. It also works by suppressing or partially preventing the effect of the immune system. Terbinafine works by stopping the production of a certain vital component for the fungal cell wall. This results in disruption of cell membrane formation process and affects the growth of the organism.
