Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?
The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as I can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure.
Take care. ...Read more

Caution is advised with repeated use, but there is no direct toxicity of the lotion from repeated uses. Too many uses would likely cause skin breakdown, redness, swelling, and bleeding ...Read more

NO!!!!: This is a steroid, and while a steroid cream will hide your symptoms and take the itch away, it does nothing to kill or treat the fungus! try using an otc anti-fungal cream like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2x/day for at least 30 days. Your symptoms should disappear in 3-5 days, but since fungal sores live 30 days, you must use it for 30 days to prevent recurrence. Also... Don't scratch! ...Read more
