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?

Yes: Yes she can use it again if needed.

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.
