Pharmacology
Indication

Used as a topical antifungal treatment.

Structured Indications Not Available
Pharmacodynamics

Clioquinol is a broad-spectrum antibacterial with antifungal properties. Application of clioquinol to extensive or eroded areas of the skin may lead to increased protein-bound iodine (PBI) levels within 1 week. In addition, elevated PBI levels may occur when relatively small areas of the skin are treated with clioquinol for more than 1 week.

Mechanism of action

Clioquinol is bacteriostatic, however, the precise mechanism of its action is unknown.

Absorption

Topical absorption is rapid and extensive, especially when the skin is covered with an occlusive dressing or if the medication is applied to extensive or eroded areas of the skin. Clioquinol is absorbed through the skin in sufficient amounts to affect thyroid function tests.
