This combination medication is employed for the treatment of diverse inflamed fungal skin infections, including ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch. The product comprises two active ingredients. Clotrimazole, an azole antifungal, operates by inhibiting the growth of fungus. Betamethasone is a potent corticosteroid and works by diminishing the swelling, redness, and itching associated with skin infections.

Uses and Dosage

If you are utilizing the lotion form of this medication, ensure to shake the bottle well before each use.

Apply this medication exclusively to the skin. Clean and thoroughly dry the targeted area. Put on a thin layer of the medication to the affected region and gently rub it in, typically twice daily (morning and evening), or as per your doctor’s instructions. After application, wash your hands unless you are using the medication for hand treatment. Avoid wrapping, covering, or bandaging the area unless specifically directed by your doctor. In the groin area, wear loose-fitting clothing after applying the medication.

Avoid applying the medication to the eyes, nose, mouth, or inside the vagina. If contact occurs in these areas, flush with plenty of water.

The dosage and duration of treatment depend on the type of infection. Treatment for ringworm or jock itch usually spans 2 weeks, while athlete’s foot is typically treated for 4 weeks. Do not exceed 45 grams of the cream or 45 milliliters of the lotion per week unless specifically directed and closely monitored by your doctor.

Adhere to the prescribed frequency and duration; using the medication more often or for a longer duration than prescribed may heighten the risk of side effects.

Use this medication consistently to maximize its benefits. Establish a routine, applying it at the same times each day.

Continue using the medication until you finish the full prescribed amount, even if symptoms subside after a few days.

Prematurely discontinuing the medication may lead to a recurrence of the infection.

Notify your doctor if your condition worsens or shows no improvement after 1 week of treatment for jock itch or ringworm, or 2 weeks of treatment for athlete’s foot.
