Quadriderm Cream is a topical medication used to treat various skin diseases and allergic conditions of the skin. It is often used to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and fungal infections. It can also be used to treat conditions like folliculitis, bacterial infections, skin problems, paronychia, and diseases from uncooked meat, hand psoriasis, skin conditions, infections of the skin, dermatological problems, and itch or rash.
Its active ingredients include Betamethasone dipropionate, Clotrimazole and Neomycin sulfate. Beclomethasone is a topical steroid that works by blocking the production of certain chemicals in the body that cause inflammation and itching. Clotrimazole works by stopping the growth of fungi by disrupting certain vital processes in their cells. Neomycin sulfate in the cream binds to the 30S subunit of bacterial ribosomes and inhibits the protein synthesis in bacteria, which stops their growth. Together, they treat your skin infection effectively.
