Pharmacological properties

topical preparation. the constituents of the cream have a combined effect in the treatment of inflammatory skin changes of an allergic etiology, additionally complicated by a bacterial infection, the course of which is accompanied by hyperkeratosis.

Betamethasone dipropionate is a synthetic fluoride derivative of hydrocortisone. It penetrates easily through the skin, providing a strong local anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and anti-allergic effect. Eliminates the causes of the formation of inflammatory processes, prevents the release of histamine and the appearance of local allergy symptoms. Due to the local vasoconstrictor effect, it reduces exudative reactions.

Gentamicin sulfate is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. It has an antibacterial effect against gram-negative and some gram-positive bacteria. Indications for its use in the form of an ointment are secondary infections in skin diseases if the infection is caused by bacteria that are sensitive to gentamicin, as well as if such an infection is suspected.

Pharmacokinetics Betamethasone dipropionate is not biotransformed in the skin (absorption does not exceed 1%). After penetration through the skin into the body, it is biotransformed in the liver and excreted mainly in the urine, in a smaller amount - with bile. The absorption of betamethasone dipropionate through the skin increases when applied to delicate skin, in the crease area, when applied to skin with damaged epidermis or skin damaged by an inflammatory process. In addition, absorption increases with frequent use of the drug or after application on a large surface of the skin. The absorption of betamethasone dipropionate through the skin in young people is more pronounced than in adults.

Gentamicin sulfate after topical application to intact skin is not absorbed, but after application to skin damaged by trauma, burns and ulcers, it may undergo systemic absorption.

Gentamicin sulfate is not biotransformed in the body and excreted unchanged in the urine.
