can use lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) on wounds?

Maybe: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) works for fungus and to decrease inflammation. Applying a steroid to an infection can make it worse. Always seek medical care for a diagnosis. It is never a good idea to put on medications one has lying around the house in hopes that it will help. Many over the counter preparations used in the wrong instance can be dangerous.

Should not: lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) is an antifungal intended for intact skin not wounds. A wound culture can help determine if an antifungal is needed.
