Tresyl, cream

Tresyl, cream

Short description

A unique combination, effective in dermatoses, of a corticosteroid with an antifungal and an antibiotic.

Advantages

This cream combines the anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic and vasoconstrictive actions of betamethasone dipropionate with the broad-spectrum antifungal activity of clotrimazole and the broad-spectrum antibiotic activity of gentamicin sulfate.
The advantage of topical application of these substances is given by the skin barrier: low systemic absorption and avoidance of the first hepatic passage.
Betamethasone and gentamicin are dissolved in cream base, so their bioavailability is increased.

Composition

1 gram of cream contains betamethasone dipropionate 0.643 mg, gentamicin sulfate 1.54 mg and clotrimazole 10 mg.
Also contains propylene glycol, liquid paraffin, Lanette Wax AO, octyldodecanol, methyl parahydroxybenzoate (E218), propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E216), purified water.

Indications

Treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses when complicated by secondary infections caused by microorganisms sensitive to the ingredients of this dermatological medicine or when the possibility of such infections occurrence is suspected.
