What Is Lotrisone Cream Usually Used For
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you use clotrimazole and betamethasone diproprionate to treat eczema? Can these 2 creams be used instead of lotrisone?
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.
GYN prescribed lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream for external vaginal area redness/itching - is this safe?
Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) has a high: Potency steroid so typically I do not recommend this be used on genitalia
Reaction from sun which have me itching on my arm, chest, back, and face. I have fluticasone propionate cream. 05% & lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream. Which 1 to use?
I would go: With the more potent one which I believe is the fluticasone, probably given to you by a doctor. Good luck, .
My husband has some sort of skin disorder on his palm. Lotrisone, (clotrimazole and betamethasone) HC, and ABT creams don't work. The sit forms a calloused area, at the Palmar crack.
Dermatology: Get an expert opinion from a dermatologist. Without a picture- cannot be diagnosed here.
I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn? If not wants good to use?
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. So choose a spray or thin lotion with a high spf (55 or higher) and apply it often while you are in the sun.
Way too many things: This is a sore point among dermatologists. Clotrimazole is an antifungal, Betamethasone is an anti-inflammatory; so the combination cream is used by many docs who are too lazy to figure out whether a rash is an eczema or a ringworm. Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well on either one, for most people.
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.
Combination drug: It is a anti-fungal plus a cortisone cream to stop the itching.
I used clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate cream on my penis does if leave scaring where u used it cuz I still have a spot kinda pink there?
See derm: See dermatologist to discuss treatment options. This can have many causes.
No: Not wise. If it still hasn't cleared up after 4 weeks of treatment, time to see your gynecologist.
