An over-the-counter antifungal drug called Mycolog-II is used to treat skin fungal infections. It comes in cream, lotion, or solution form and contains the two medications clotrimazole and betamethasone. This article is written to provide information about Mycolog-II to Welzo users.

Health Benefits

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.

Side Effects

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.
