    How does this medication work?

    This cream is a local anesthetic and antiarrhythmic that works by stabilizing the neuronal membrane by blocking the voltage-gated sodium channels. It inhibits depolarization of the postsynaptic nerve that prevents the transmission of pain signals. Calcium Dobesilate is vasoprotective medicine which strengthens the blood vessels in the affected area and promoting healing. Hydrocortisone acts as a corticosteroid used for reducing skin inflammation. Your body releases different chemicals in response to certain triggers. It works by stopping the infection-fighting white blood cells from reaching the part of your body which is prone to infections. Phenylephrine is an alpha-1 adrenergic receptor agonist belonging to the phenethylamine class, which acts as a nasal decongestant. It works by narrowing the swelling of blood vessels in the ear and nose, thereby providing great relief from discomfort. Zinc Oxide has astringent and antiseptic action.
