Drug Class and Mechanism
Lotrisone falls under antifungal and corticosteroid combination and it works by weakening the cell membrane of certain fungi. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-itching agent.
You must maintain a schedule for taking the medicine at the same time each day so that you do not miss out on any doses. But, in the advent of a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember so that you can compensate for the loss of the dose.
