Q: How FOURDERM CREAM works?
A: FOURDERM CREAM helps to treat, control, and prevent bacterial, fungal, skin, & allergic infections, where Chlorhexidine gluconate kills microorganisms by binding strongly with skin and preventing their growth, Clobetasol propionate prevents occurrence of swelling, redness & itchy skin (inflammatory reaction) by blocking the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers responsible for inflammation), Miconazole prevents fungal infection by preventing the fungus from forming their own protective covering thus resulting in their destruction and Neomycin prevents bacterial infections by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis which results in bacterial cell destruction thereby treating the infection and preventing its occurence.
