How Turgoderm Cream works

Turgoderm Cream is a combination of four medicines: Beclometasone, Neomycin, Clotrimazole, and Chlorocresol, which treat skin infections. Beclometasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Neomycin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
