How does this medication work? What will it do for me?
This combination product contains two medications: betamethasone and clotrimazole. It is used to treat itchy, inflamed skin rashes caused by certain types of fungus (e.g., athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm). Betamethasone belongs to the group of medications called corticosteroids and it works by decreasing inflammation. Clotrimazole belongs to the group of medications called antifungals and it works by killing certain types of fungus.
Once treatment is started, itching and redness are usually relieved within 3 to 5 days. If relief does not occur after 1 week of use for jock itch or ringworm, contact your doctor. If relief does not occur after 2 weeks of use for athlete's foot, contact your doctor.
