Vaginal Antifungal Agent
  • The active component of  Lomefent® is Fenticonazole nitrate that is an imidazole antifungal agent with antimicrobial activity against some gram-Positive bacteria and is therefore indicated in mycosis associated with bacterial super infections.
  • Fenticonazole nitrate exerts fungistatic and fungicidal actions on dermatophytes (responsible for most mycotic skin infections) pathogenic yeasts, dimorphous fungi and moulds. 
  • Lomefent® is active, both in vitro and in vivo,against trichomonas vaginalis .  

Each ovule of Lomefent® vaginal ovule contains :

  • Fenticonazole nitrate    600 mg Or 1000 mg

  • Trichomonas vaginalis .
  • Vaginal infections sustained by mixed forms of Trichomonas vaginalis and candida albicans .
  • Genital candidiasis (vulvovaginitis, colpitis, infectious fluor) .
  • Hypersensitivity to Fenticonazole nitrate .
  • Due to the limited systemic availability after vaginal application, clinically relevant interactions occur very rarely.
  • Contact should be avoided between latex products (such as contraceptive diaphragms, condoms) and Lomefent® , since intra vaginal preparations of fenticonazole may damage the latex . 

Use during pregnancy :

  • Although transcutaneous and vaginal absorption of  Fenticonazole is very poor, use of the preparation is not recommended in pregnancy .
