Lotrisone is used for treating certain fungal skin infections, including ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch. It also relieves redness, swelling, and itching associated with infection. Lotrisone is an antifungal and corticosteroid combination. It works by weakening the cell membrane of certain fungi. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-itching agent.
