is clotrimazole the same as diprolene (augmented betamethasone dip) cream?

No: Topical Clotrimazole is an anti-fungal antibiotic used to treat a variety of mild fungal skin infections and vaginal yeast infections. Diprolene (augmented betamethasone dip) is potent topical steroid cream. The two medications are very different and have very different uses.
