Buy Lotriderm Cream Online in the UK
Lotriderm Cream contains 1.0% w/w clotrimazole, 0.064% w/w and 0.05% w/w betamethasone as active ingredients. Betamethasone belongs to the topical corticosteroid class of drugs, which are used topically to the skin to relieve itching and redness caused by particular skin disorders. Clotrimazole belongs to the class of drugs known as antifungals, and it acts by destroying specific types of fungus.
Lotriderm Cream is advised as a short-term treatment for redness and itching caused by fungal infections of the skin.
Itching and redness usually subside 3 to 5 days after treatment begins. Consult your doctor if ringworm relief does not occur after one week of medication. Consult your doctor if relief from athlete's foot does not come after two weeks of use.
Every day, apply two thin, even coatings of lotriderm cream to the afflicted area(s) of skin.
If your hands are not the area being treated, wash them after using the cream.
Make sure you use the cream for the entire period your doctor has prescribed. If you stop using it too soon after the symptoms have faded, the condition may resurface.
Avoid covering the treated area with tight dressings, such as bandages or other coverings, as this will accelerate the body's absorption of the drug and increase the risk of undesired side effects from the steroid.
You should see your doctor if an infection persists after the course of treatment has ended or if your skin seems to be becoming more inflamed.
