Pharmacology

Bethametasone is a synthetic corticosteroid and is used to decrease inflammation in the skin. When applied to the skin it is absorbed into the skin cells. Here it works by preventing the release of certain chemicals from the cells.

Clotrimazole is antifungal medicine used to treat infections with fungi and yeasts. Clotrimazole kills fungal cell membranes. It works by stopping the fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membrances. The disruption in production of ergosterol causes of ergosterol causes hole to appear in the fungal cell membrane.

Gentamicin belongs to a class of antibiotic known as the aminoglycosides. Gentamicin is bactericide in action (kills bacteria). It does this by causing the bacteria to produce defective proteins which are essential for the growth.
