How it works
Clobetasol works by inhibiting the release of certain substances in the body that cause inflammation (swelling, redness, pain, etc). Miconazole stops the growth of fungi by disrupting certain vital processes in the cell. Neomycin kills the bacteria by blocking the production of certain proteins that are required for their growth. Zinc oxide works by soothing the skin, preventing skin irritation, and helping in the healing process. Borax penetrates deep into the skin and helps to reduce bacteria located on the skin.
