What is Lotriderm Cream?
Lotriderm is a combination drug used to treat fungal skin infections. Without treatment they often become inflamed. It is often due to skin conditions such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot.
The combination of Clotrimazole (an antifungal) and Betamethasone (a corticosteroid) work better to treat fungal infections when used together. It is often recommended when other treatments fail to work.
