Common use

Lotrisone is an antifungal medication that is a lotion or cream and its active components are a combination of two drugs: a steroid (betamethasone) and an antifungal drug (clotrimazole). Clotrimazole inhibits the growth of several types of fungi by affecting the process of fungal membranes formation. Betamethasone is a synthetic corticosteroid that suppresses inflammation as well as the body’s immune response.

Dosage and direction

Lotrisone cream should be gently massaged into the skin and around the area affected by fungi twice a day (morning and evening). Do not use bandage or wrapping over the treated area to avoid excessive absorption of the medication. Treatment of tinea corporis or tinea cruris should not continue longer than two weeks while one of the tinea pedis should not last longer than four weeks.

Avoid getting of the Lotrisone cream into your eyes. Steroid drugs influence activity of the adrenal, hypothalamic, and pituitary glands, can lead to excessive blood sugar levels, as well as to a Cushing’s syndrome characterized by acne, depression, excessive hair growth, humped upper back, insomnia, moon-faced appearance, muscle weakness, obese trunk, paranoia, stretch marks, stunted growth (in children), wasted limbs, and susceptibility to bruising, fractures, and infection.
