How it works
Niosol-F Cream is a combination of Clobetasol and Fusidic acid. Clobetasol is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Fusidic acid is an antibiotic that blocks protein synthesis in bacteria; this helps to stop the growth of the bacteria.
