Epiderm cream and lotion is a combination of betamethasone dipropionate, gentamicin, tolnaftate, and iodochlorhydroxyquinoline.
Healthcare professionals prescribe it to treat several skin conditions associated with inflammation and mixed bacterial and fungal infections. For example, eczema, seborrheic and contact dermatitis, psoriasis, ringworm, athletes foot, and skin itch.
Betamethasone dipropionate reduces skin itch, swelling, and redness (i.e., anti-inflammatory action). These symptoms can occur in skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic, and contact dermatitis.
Gentamicin kills bacteria (i.e., anti-bacterial action) which are associated with eczema and psoriasis.
Tolnaftate and iodochlorhydroxyquinoline kill fungus (i.e., anti-fungal action), which causes ringworm and athlete’s foot.
