Fourderm active ingredients- Betamethasone
Betamethasone is a reasonably effective glucocorticoid steroid with immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory effects. Divergent to other medications with these properties, betamethasone does not initiate water preservation. It is applicable as a contemporary ointment, cream, foam, gel or lotion for treatment of itching (e.g. causedfrom eczema). Betamethasone sodium phosphate is occasionally approved as an intramuscular injection (I.M) for skin rashes and itching from diverse diseases which includes hypersensitivity to poison ivy and other analogous plants.
Betamethasone is marketed as several ester extracts: betamethasone dipropionate (under the brand name Fourderm , Diprolene, Diprosone, and others), sodium phosphate and valerate (under the brand name Celestone, Betnovate, and others).
Fourderm antifungal cream or Betamethasone belongs to the family of corticosteroid with largely glucocorticoid actions. It checks and controls swelling by keeping in check the speed of protein production, decreasing the relocation of fibroblasts and polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and overturning lysosomal stabilization and capillary permeability.
