However, the uses mentioned here are not exhaustive. There may be other conditions for which this medication may be used upon a doctor’s discretion.

Composition

Composition

The active ingredients of Candid 3D Cream 15gm are Clobetasol Propionate 0.05% w/w, Clotrimazole 1% w/w, and Neomycin 0.5% w/w.

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Clobetasol Propionate has anti-inflammatory properties used to treat various skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis caused by exposure to the Poison, etc. It is a corticosteroid and corticosteroids are believed to act by inducing the phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins (collectively known as lipocortins). These proteins are thought to control the biosynthesis of inflammation mediators like prostaglandins and leukotrienes by releasing arachidonic acid. Thus, the whole process results in a decrease in inflammation.

Ergosterol is an essential provitamin that fungi and protozoa cannot survive without. Clotrimazole targets the ergosterol present in the cell membrane of many fungi and protozoa.

And finally, Neomycin is a bacteriostatic (stops the bacterial growth) agent which interferes with bacterial protein synthesis and stops the further growth of bacteria.
