What is the alternate for Trimovate cream?

I have swollen lymph nodes in my face (from throat to temple about 2 cm high), warm to the touch and also very painful to touch. My ear canal is swollen shut as well. I have been given a prescription for trimovate and antibiotics. Trimovate is a out of stock indefinitely but I have the antibiotics. What would be a good replacement for trimovate?My lower legs are swollen, bruised and itchy. My TSH is five.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The swollen lymph nodes might be due to infection in the ear canal. You can continue antibiotics and most cases respond well to antibiotics. In fact ointments has got minimal role, if Trimovate is not available, you can use Betnovate or Betnovate -N as a substitute.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks.
