Mechanism Of Action
This cream is a combination of ciprofloxacin, metronidazole, terbinafine, and clobetasol, which gives users complete relief from various skin infections and their effects include redness, itching, and swelling.
Ciprofloxacin: Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic that works by stopping bacteria from repairing, dividing, or reproducing and ultimately killing them.
Metronidazole: Another antibiotic, metronidazole, works by killing other microorganisms, including parasites and anaerobic bacteria that cause infections by destroying DNA.
Terbinafine hydrochloride: Terbinafine is an antifungal medication that limits the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming a protective shield.
Clobetasol Propionate: Finally, the steroid Clobetasol works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers called prostaglandins that cause itching, redness, and swelling of the skin.
Some potential benefits include:
Broad-spectrum antibacterial effects: Ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are both antibiotics that can target a variety of bacterial infections, including skin and soft tissue infections.
Antifungal properties: Terbinafine is an antifungal medication that may be effective in treating fungal skin infections such as athlete’s foot, eczema, and ringworm.
Anti-inflammatory effects: Clobetasol propionate is a potent corticosteroid that helps reduce inflammation, itching, and redness associated with various skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, and allergic reactions.
Comprehensive treatment: Combining these medications in a single cream provides a comprehensive approach to treating complex skin conditions involving bacterial, fungal and inflammatory components.
Convenience: Using combination creams can be convenient by reducing the need to use multiple separate medications for different aspects of the skin condition.
