How it works
Clobetasol works by inhibiting the production of certain chemicals that cause redness and swelling. Ofloxacin works by inhibiting an enzyme required for the bacterial DNA to replicate, thus inhibiting bacterial cell division. Ornidazole works by inhibiting the growth of protozoa and bacteria by interfering with protein formation process, leading to cell death. Terbinafine works by stopping the production of a certain vital component for the fungal cell wall. This results in the disruption of cell membrane formation process and affects the growth of the organism.
