How Does It Work?

Ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone contains a combination of ciprofloxacin and hydrocortisone. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic medication that belongs to a group of drugs called fluoroquinolones, or "quinolones" for short. Fluoroquinolones interfere with a bacterial enzyme called DNA gyrase, which is needed by the bacteria to make DNA. Bacteria need to make DNA in order to multiply.
 
Hydrocortisone belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids. It works to reduce inflammation and suppress the body's natural immune response to infection.
