    How it works

    Betamethasone Dipropionate : The corticosteroids are a class of compounds comprising steroid hormones, secreted by the adrenal cortex and their synthetic analogs. In pharmacologic doses corticosteroids areused primarily for their anti-inflammatory and/or immunosuppressive effects. Topical corticosteroids, such as betamethasone dipropionate, are effective in the treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses primarily because of their anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive actions. However, while the physiologic, pharmacologic, and clinical effects of the corticosteroids are well known, the exact mechanisms of their actions in each disease are uncertain.Clotrimazole: Clotrimazole, an azole antifungal agent, inhibits 14-a-demethylation of lanosterol in fungi by binding to one of the cytochrome P-450 enzymes. This leads to the accumulation of 14-a-methylsterols and reduced concentrations of ergosterol, a sterol essential for a normal fungal cytoplasmic membrane. The methylsterols may affect the electron transport system, thereby inhibiting growth of fungi. Gentamicin : Gentamicin sulfate is a wide spectrum antibiotic that provides highly effective topical treatment in primary and secondary bacterial infections of the skin. Gentamicin Sulfate Cream may clear infections that have not responded to treatment with other topical antibiotic agents. In primary skin infections such as impetigo contagiosa, treatment 3 or 4 times daily with Gentamicin Sulfate Cream usually clears the lesions promptly. In secondary skin infections, Gentamicin Sulfate Cream aids in the treatment of the underlying dermatoses by controlling the infection. Bacteria susceptible to the action of gentamicin sulfate include sensitive strains of Streptococci (group A beta-hemolytic, alpha-hemolytic), Staphylococcus aureus (coagulase positive, coagulase negative, and some penicillinase-producing strains), and the gram-negative bacteria,Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aerobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, and Kiebsiella pneumoniae.

    When not to Use

    It is contraindicated in individuals who have shown hypersensitivity to any of the components .



    Long-term continuous topical therapy should be avoided where possible, particularly in children, as adrenal suppression can occur even without occlusion .

    Bacterial infection is encouraged by the warm, moist conditions induced by occlusive dressings and the skin should be cleansed before a fresh dressing is applied.

    Warning 2

    Excess use of this cream is not advisable unless it is recommended by physician.

    Warning 3

    Gentamicin can cause irreversible ototoxicity; and Gentamicin has nephrotoxic potential. In renal impairment the plasma clearance of gentamicin is reduced. Products which contain antimicrobial agents should not be diluted .
