Since the precise etiological diagnosis is not always possible to be made only on clinical grounds, in a country like ours, where sophisticated laboratory facilities required for making precise diagnosis are either absent or beyond the reach of the common man, a skin preparation having a broad spectrum of action such as Surfaz SN cream having anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and potent antifungal activities Is very much required.
Many times though when the infection is due to fungus there is a chance of secondary bacterial infections or vice versa. At times the inflammatory skin disorders, which respond to topical corticosteroids, are superadded with bacterial and / or fungal infections of the skin. In these conditions, treatment with anti-inflammatory agents alone is not sufficient and a proper antibiotic has to be added in the regimen.
Justification for individual active ingredients in Surfaz SN Cream
Beclomethasone Dipropionate is one of the potent fluorinated corticosteroids. In the classification of topical steroids based on their potencies, Beclomethasone Dipropionate is classified as a potent steroid, whereas Betamethasone Benzoate as well as Betamethasone Valerate is classified as moderately potent steroids. Like any other topical steroids, it has the following properties:
• Anti-inflammatory action
• antipruritic action
• Vasoconstrictor action
By these 3 actions, Beclomethasone Dipropionate promptly controls symptoms such as itching, swelling, redness and scaling. Studies have proved that Beclomethasone Dipropionate is admirably suited for topical therapy. In fact Beclomethasone Dipropionate was found to possess remarkable local anti-inflammatory activity and low absorption properties which constitute valid justification for its topical use in dermatology. - 0.025% Beclomethasone Dipropionate Cream is an extremely active and effective preparation with low incidence of side reaction.
