NEW DERMITOR-KT CREAM
Topical steroids with anti-infectives are combination creams that contain both a steroid and an anti-infective agent and are used to treat infections of the skin or scalp that are red, itchy, or have minor swelling. Steroids (also known as corticosteroids) are very effective at reducing inflammation (redness and swelling), suppressing the immune system, and constricting (narrowing) blood vessels in the skin. They are available in various potencies (strengths). Anti-infective agents kill or inhibit the spread of infectious organisms. They include antibacterials (suppress bacterial growth), antifungal (kill or suppress fungi) agents. The choice of topical steroid with anti-infective depends on the suspected or confirmed infective organism (ie, whether it is a bacteria or fungus) and the potency of the steroid required. Ketoconazole contains the broad-spectrum synthetic antifungal agent, Ketoconazole 2%. Ketoconazole is an imidazole antifungal agent Beclomethasone Dipropionate is a potent glucocorticoid steroid. It is a prodrug of the free form, Beclomethasone. Neomycin is a topical antibiotic for the treatment or destroys the fungi and bacteria which cause skin infections.
