How Betamil GM Products work

Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole is a combination of three medicines: Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole1, Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole2 and Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole3, which treats skin infections. Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole1 is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole2 is an antibiotic which stops the growth of bacteria while Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Miconazole3 is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi on the skin. Together, they treat your skin infection effectively.
