How does Candid B cream work?
Beclometasone and Clotrimazole are topical drugs that can be used to treat skin infections, and together they make up Candid-B Cream.
A steroid known as Beclometasone inhibits the production of chemical messengers known as Prostaglandins, which are responsible for the skin's redness, swelling, and itching.
Antifungal medication containing Clotrimazole prevents fungus growth on the skin by preventing the fungi from producing their protective layer, which is necessary for survival.
