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

Diprolene (augmented betamethasone dip) is: Betamethasone; Clotrimazole is an anti-fungal. A steroid cream is not good to use on any infection, but does stop itch and redness, but blunts immune and inflammatory defenses from ridding the infection.
