Actavis Clotrimazole And Betamethasone Dipropionate Cream
Fungal infections: This combination of medicines (lotrisone) is used for the treatment of superficial fungal infections. It is best to have had some test to prove a fungus is present before using. The Clotrimazole takes car of the fungus and the Betamethasone helps reduce the inflammation (redness) that can often be present.
The clotrimazole: Is an anti-fungal; betamethasonce a glucocorticoid that suppresses immune response, and inflammatory cells and that actually makes the infection worse.
Yes.: There are short papers that support the benefit of these used together.
No: None of those medications would be helpful in the resolution of shingles. Clotrimazole is an anti fungal cream and shingles is caused by a virus. The use of corticosteroids in shingles is also controversial because they are of little benefit and can increase risk of secondary bacterial infection.

Intertrigo: Intertrigo happens under the skin folds & is due to maceration in those areas that provides a good environment for candida yeast to live and irritates the skin. Clotrimazole has good activity against yeast and Betamethasone relieves the inflammation. Protecting the skin with a zinc oxide product such as a diaper rash ointment after putting those on will further protect skin from maceration.
