Mode of actions
Betamethasone dipropionate is a corticosteroid that prevents and reduce inflammation by depressing the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and fibroblasts; reversing capillary permeability and lysosomal stabilisation at the cellular level. Clotrimazole is an antifungal agent that binds to phospholipids in the fungal cell membrane. It causes loss of essential intracellular components by altering cell wall permeability.
