Betamethasone + Clotrimazole + Gentamicin
Dosage Form: Cream
This Cream is indicated for the treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses when complicated by infections caused by bacteria and fungi. This is also effective in the treatment of tinea pedis, tinea cruris & tinea corporis, acute and chronic eczema.
This Cream combines the anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive actions of Betamethasone Dipropionate with the broad spectrum antifungal activity of Clotrimazole and the wide-spectrum bactericidal antibiotic activity of Gentamicin Sulfate. Clotrimazole appears to act on the fungal cell membrane, causing leakage of cell contents. Gentamicin provides highly effective topical treatment in primary and secondary bacterial infections of the skin.
Apply gently into the affected skin areas twice daily. Duration of therapy varies depending upon the extent and location of disease and patient response. For effective treatment, This Cream should be applied regularly.
Route of administration: Topically.

This Cream is contraindicated in those patients with a history of sensitivity reactions to any of its components.
Adverse reactions have been reported very rarely and include hypochromia, burning, erythema, exudation etc.
