How Clofin GT Ointment works

Clofin GT Ointment is a combination of four medicines: Clobetasol, Terbinafine, Gentamicin, and Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate which treat skin infections. Clobetasol is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Terbinafine is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Gentamicin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate has astringent and antiseptic action.
