Athlete's foot, jock itch, and ringworm are just a few of the skin fungal infections that are treated with mycolog-II.Betamethasone, a corticosteroid, helps to lessen swelling and itching, and clotrimazole aids in the fungus's destruction.
The side effects of mycolog-II are generally well tolerated, but some people may experience burning, stinging, or irritation where it was applied.Inform your doctor if these side effects continue or get worse.People who have a history of betamethasone or clotrimazole hypersensitivity should not use mycolog-II.
You can buy Mycolog-II as a cream, lotion, or solution.For two weeks, it is applied to the affected area twice or three times per day.
Other topical corticosteroids should not be used with Mycolog-II as this may increase the risk of side effects.If you are taking any other medications, especially oral corticosteroids, talk to your doctor before using Mycolog-II.
Mechanism of Action
Mycolog-II functions by eradicating the fungus responsible for the infection.Clotrimazole aids in the fungus's death, while betamethasone helps to lessen swelling and itching.
The skin is treated topically with Mycolog-II. While clotrimazole absorbs slowly through the skin and is metabolized by the liver, betamethasone is quickly metabolized by the liver.
Betamethasone has a half-life of approximately 2 hours, whereas clotrimazole has a half-life of approximately 18 hours.
