How effective is treating ring worm with lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone)?

How effective is treating ring worm with lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone)?

Not ideal: If you have been definitively diagnosed with "ring worm" (a form of dermaphytosis), then lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) is not an ideal therapy. This is because this medicine contains a topical corticosteroid, which does not actually treat the fungal infection (it may help relieve the itch) as well as an anti-fungal. The latter is all you really need. A single anti-fungal agent suffices. ...Read more

Highly not advised!: If what you have is not herpes, then you are ok.However, if you think it's herpes, watch out!the topical you are using has an antifungal agent and a steroid that suppresses the immune system. You have a viral infection. As a result, your lesions, despite it feeling better in the short run, will soon get worse. See you doctor in order to get a prescription for an antiviral agent like valacyclovir. ...Read more
