Lotrisone (generic name: betamethasone/clotrimazole; brand names include: Lotril / Cazol-B) belongs to a group of medicines known as antifungal agents.
Lotrisone is used on the skin to treat fungal infections of the feet, groin and body. Lotrisone should be used for fungal infections that are inflamed and have symptoms of redness and / or itching.
Lotrisone contains two compounds - a synthetic corticosteroid (betamethasone dipropionate) and a synthetic antifungal agent (clotrimazole) - that target different aspects of fungal infection. Clotrimazole targets the cause of the infection by inhibiting the growth of fungus on the skin, whereas betamethasone reduces fungal infection symptoms such as itching, swelling, and redness.
Follow the directions for using this medicine provided by your doctor. Use Lotrisone exactly as directed.
Gently massage sufficient Lotrisone cream into the affected and surrounding skin areas twice a day, in the morning and evening. Treatment for 2 weeks on the groin or on the body and for 4 weeks on the feet is recommended.
Tell your doctor before using Lotrisone, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
