Alclometasone is employed to address a range of skin conditions, including eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rashes. This medication functions to diminish the swelling, itching, and redness that may manifest in these types of skin conditions.

Alclometasone falls within the category of medium strength corticosteroids, providing relief by mitigating inflammatory responses in the affected areas of the skin.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is designed for topical use on the skin, but it should not be applied to the face, groin, underarms, or for diaper rash unless specifically instructed by your doctor.

Before applying, ensure your hands are clean and dry. Clean and dry the affected area before gently applying a thin film of the medication as directed by your doctor, typically 2 to 3 times a day. Avoid bandaging, covering, or wrapping the treated area unless your doctor advises otherwise.

After application, wash your hands unless the medication is being used on the hands. When applying near the eyes, take care to prevent contact, as it can worsen or cause glaucoma. Additionally, avoid getting the medication in the eyes, nose, or mouth. If accidental contact occurs in these areas, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

Use this medication exclusively for the specified condition as prescribed by your doctor. If using on a child, do not exceed 3 weeks of continuous application unless directed by the doctor.

Inform your doctor if there is no improvement or if your condition worsens after two weeks of use.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • skin stinging
  • burning
  • itching
  • irritation
  • dryness
  • redness
  • rash when first applied to the skin
  • thinning or softening of your skin
  • skin rash or irritation around your mouth
  • swollen hair follicles
  • changes in color of treated skin

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • blurred vision
  • seeing halos around lights
  • mood changes
  • sleep problems (insomnia)
  • weight gain
  • puffiness in your face
  • muscle weakness
  • extreme tiredness


  • Before initiating the use of alclometasone, inform your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies, especially if you are allergic to alclometasone, other corticosteroids like hydrocortisone or prednisone, or any other substances present in the product. Inactive ingredients may also be a concern.
  • Share your medical history with your doctor or pharmacist, particularly if you have conditions such as poor blood circulation, diabetes, or immune system problems.
  • Avoid using alclometasone if there is an existing infection or sore in the treatment area.
  • Using corticosteroids for extended periods or on large skin areas can potentially hinder your body’s response to physical stress. Before undergoing surgery, emergency treatment, or in the case of a serious illness or injury, inform your doctor or dentist about your use of this medication or any recent use within the past few months.
  • Although it’s unlikely, prolonged use of corticosteroid medications in children may temporarily slow down growth. Regular check-ups with the doctor are recommended to monitor the child’s height.
  • During pregnancy, use alclometasone only if absolutely necessary. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • The passage of this drug into breast milk when applied to the skin is not well-established. Similar medications are known to pass into breast milk when taken orally. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

How long does it take for Aclovate Ointment to work?

Why can’t you use Aclovate Ointment on your groin or your face?

The skin on your groin or face is usually thinner. If you apply Aclovate Ointment to your groin or face, you may experience more side effects, because the medication can absorb more through the thinner areas of the skin.
