How it works
Betamethasone valerate is an active topical corticosteroid which produces a rapid response in those inflammatory dermatoses that are normally responsive to topical corticosteroid therapy and is often effective in the less responsive conditions such as psoriasis. Neomycin sulfate is a broad-spectrum bactericidal antibiotic effective against the majority of bacteria commonly associated with skin infections.
