What is a US equivalent of TRIBEN PLUS CREAM (Beclometasone Topical, Clotrimazole Topical, Neomycin Topical), Do i need a prescription for buying it?

Cortisporin close: The closest prescription medicine is cortisporin. It has the steroid and antibiotic component, but not the anti fungal component.

Apply cool...: ...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation. If you burn after applying a sunscreen, you are not using one that is strong enough, or applying it often enough. Breakouts are usually from the vehicle.

Can I use maximum strength hydrocortison anti-itch cream 1% for vagina itching?

You can, but...: ...Whether it works will depend on the cause. If it's due to a yeast infection, for example, the effect will be temporary at best. Still, it won't hurt to try, and if it doesn't work, see your doctor and find out the cause. And by the way, "maximum strength" is a marketing slogan; 1% hc cream is actually not very strong at all - it's just the maximum you can buy without a prescription. ...Read more

I have 3 creams which one is best for eczema? 1 Nystatin ointment 2 clotrimazole and betamethason dipropionate cream  3 aloe vesta anti fungal ointmen

Betamethasone: These medicines are for fungus; the clotrimazole/betamethasone mixture will help do to the steroid component, but it should never be applied to areas of thin skin (axillae, groin, face). The clotrimazole component is for fungus, as well as the other ointments you mentioned ...Read more
