Hydrozole Cream Uses

Hydrozole cream is a topical antifungal medication composed of hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid and clotrimazole, an antifungal agent. It is used to treat inflammation, swelling, itchiness, and discomfort associated with a wide range of skin conditions such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and candidal infections, etc.

Hydrozole cream works by preventing the growth of infection-causing organisms and is used to treat fungal infections in both adults and children. Unlike other antifungal products that only target the infection, Hydrozole cream contains Hydrocortisone, which also deals with the itchy irritation caused by the infection, effectively treating both the infection and the accompanying irritation.
