Kenacomb cream is a corticosteroid and anti-fungal medication that is used to treat a variety of skin conditions and infections that include eczema, dermatitis, allergies and psoriasis. It is applied topically to the skin, and it is typically prescribed by a physician. Kenacomb cream also contains the antibiotic Neomycin, an ingredient that is also used in several other over-the-counter topical medications.

Kenacomb cream is typically applied one to three times a day. The side effects of Kenacomb cream include burning at the application site, itching skin, ingrown hairs, secondary infections of the skin and acne. Due to the fact that Kenacomb contains corticosteroids, it is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
