Miconazole, a derivative of imidazole, inhibits the biological production of ergosterol, a molecule needed by fungi to build their cell walls. Because of this, miconazole is widely used to treat yeast infections of the skin, throat, vagina, and the entire body. It is also used in some photographic development processes.
