The mechanism of the therapeutic effect of any drug used for therapeutic purposes is determined by its composition. The Internet offers two options for ointment. Ointment King of the skin (on the package there is an inscription - Compound ketoconazole cream KL, manufacturer: Dihon Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Yunnan, China) - contains ketoconazole and clobetasol propionate It should be noted that the ketoconazole (nizoral) included in this ointment is an antifungal agent group of imidazole, which breaks the shell of cells of fungi and bacteria, metabolism is also disrupted, which causes the stoppage of their reproduction and death.Adverse actions of ketoconazole are manifested by burning of the skin and dermatitis.
And clobetasol propionate is a synthetic corticosteroid that removes inflammation, redness and itching of the skin by blocking the synthesis of inflammatory cytokines and narrowing the vessels in the area of inflammation.
Another ointment King of skin from psoriasis (another cardboard package), except ketoconazole, has in its composition extracts: kapur kachri, sandal, tulasi, nyima, turmeric and yashtimadhu. However, information on how these Ayurvedic components work, in the "instructions" is missing, as, indeed, and its translation.
Ginger lily (Hydicum spicatum) or pale ginger - kapur kachri - is contained in the form of essential oil from the rhizome of the plant; removes irritation and itching of the skin, reduces its inflammation. Sandal has antiseptic properties and also removes inflammation, and also improves capillary circulation and moisturizes the skin.
Tulasi extract - extract from the leaves of the basilica of the sacred (Ocimum sanctum) - contains a set of terpenes and phenols, due to which it acts as an anesthetic and disinfectant.
All parts of the subtropical Naim tree (Azadirachta india, Azadirachta indica) are used in Ayurvedic medicine and homeopathy as an antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient. Turmeric (a plant of the ginger family) in Asia is considered a powerful remedy against microbes. But yashtimadhu in Ayurveda is called the licorice root (licorice), which contains phytosterols and promotes the regeneration of skin cells.
