It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. It provides temporary relief of symptoms. Gentamicin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
