A 22-year-old male asked about a 35-year-old female:

my sister stopped taking beta micoter (clotrimazole&betameth.) when the symptoms of tinea pedis stopped now she can use the same or more potent drug?

May want to consider clotrimazole by itself, too much steroid can have side effects, I.e skin atrophy...

Would not...: ...Recommend using this combination. Clotrimazole can be used safely for weeks or months, but Betamethasone can damage skin if used on thin skin more than a week.
