Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream: This cream is an antifungal cream that has a little cortizone (hydrocortisone) in it. I don't use this cream because i feel it decreases local defenses against the very fungus you're trying to kill. And besides that, the cortizone (hydrocortisone) which is in this cream is too powerful to use on some areas for extended times. It can cause thinning of the skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Likely yes: A lot of people with seb derm respond to topical steroids for the redness. However, Betamethasone is a potent steroid and a lot more than i would recommend using on your face. Also, Clotrimazole may help some patients with seb derm. Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) would not be my first, or second or even third agent to use. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
I was prescribed lotrisone for a stubborn vaginal yeast infection but am nervous to use it. Do the benefits outweigh the risks?
Yes, but: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) can be used on the skin, but only for the right reasons. The antifungal part gets rid of some tinea infections, while the steroid part cuts down on redness, itching, and inflammation. A doctor can evaluate to see if such a cream should be used, and importantly, for how long it should be used. ...Read more
Is Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) fine for long term use? I have a chronic skin problem that comes back every other week.
Can you use clotrimazole and betamethasone diproprionate to treat eczema? Can these 2 creams be used instead of lotrisone?
I have had 3 different physicians prescribe lotrisone, (clotrimazole and betamethasone) while 2 others said not to use it for anything?
Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone): Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) has Betamethasone (a steroid that is anti-inflammatory and prevents inflammation that could help fight off fungus) and Clotrimazole (an antifungal cream). Many believe that the Betamethasone counteracts the Clotrimazole and believe that if there is a fungal infection, it should be treated first, then use a steroid cream to help calm the inflammation. ...Read more

I was ttc and I used lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream groin area 3days before ttc. If pregnant will it hurt baby since its a category c drug? How long is it in body?
Was prescribed lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) for a stubborn yeast infection under my breasts, its working great but how long is safe to continue use?
Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) : Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) combines a very weak antifungal/antiyeast med with a very strong cortisone, so not certain what this med treats. When applied to body folds for even a few weeks, Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) can cause thinning of skin, stretchmarks, dilated blood vessels, etc. For yeast infections under breasts, there are better antifungal (without cortisones) medications that would help. Please do not use this one. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Given lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) for penile fungal infection. Used 9 days, foreskin thinning, blueness on head. Month later, skin still thinned & burning. Concerned!
Use steroid free: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) is a combination of both an anti-fungal and a topical steroid. The steroid is causing the thinning of the skin. And 9 days is not long enough to treat fungal skin infection. You need a topical cream like lotrimin that is just the anti-fungal cream and not containing any steroid, and then use it routinely for weeks to clear up the infection. Oral meds also available but more side effects. ...Read more
