Clobetasol topical is employed for addressing the itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling, inflammation, and discomfort associated with diverse scalp and skin conditions. These conditions include psoriasis and eczema. Classified as corticosteroids, clobetasol functions by activating natural substances in the skin, thereby diminishing swelling, redness, and itching.

Uses and Dosage

Clobetasol topical is available in various forms, including cream, gel, ointment, lotion, foam, and spray for skin application, as well as foam, spray, solution (liquid), and shampoo for scalp use. Typically, clobetasol cream, gel, ointment, lotion, foam, solution (liquid), and spray are applied twice daily, while clobetasol shampoo is used once a day.

Adhere to the prescribed usage, avoiding overapplication or more frequent use than advised by your doctor. Refrain from applying it to areas outside the specified treatment zone or using it for other skin conditions unless directed otherwise.

Expect improvement in your skin condition within the initial two weeks of treatment. If your symptoms persist, contact your doctor.

For topical application, apply a small amount of cream, ointment, gel, lotion, foam, or spray to cover the affected skin area with a thin, even film, gently rubbing it in.

When applying the foam, spray, or solution (liquid) to the scalp, part your hair, apply the medicine, and rub it in. Avoid washing or rubbing the treated area until the product dries.

Before using the foam, carefully read the provided instructions and consult your doctor or pharmacist for clarification.

To use the shampoo on your scalp, apply the medicine, wait 15 minutes, then wet your hair, create lather with your fingers, and rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid covering your head during this process. You can resume regular hair washing after applying and rinsing off the clobetasol shampoo.

Clobetasol foam is flammable. Stay away from open flames, fire, and do not smoke during application and shortly afterward.

This medication is strictly for skin use. Avoid contact with eyes, mouth, and refrain from swallowing it. Do not use it in genital and rectal areas or in skin creases and armpits unless directed by your doctor.

Avoid applying other skin preparations or products without consulting your doctor, and do not bandage the treated area unless advised otherwise.

After applying clobetasol topical, remember to wash your hands.

Side Effects

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

  • burning, itching, irritation, redness, or dryness of the skin
  • acne
  • tiny red bumps or rash around the mouth
  • small white or red bumps on the skin
  • bruising or shiny skin
  • red or purple blotches or lines under the skin
  • thin, fragile, or dry skin
  • changes in skin color

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

  • redness, swelling, oozing pus or other signs of skin infection in the place where you applied clobetasol
  • severe rash
  • skin sores
  • changes in the way fat is spread around the body
  • sudden weight gain
  • unusual tiredness
  • muscle weakness

  • Before starting clobetasol treatment, inform your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies, specifically to clobetasol or other corticosteroids like hydrocortisone and prednisone. Inactive ingredients in the product may trigger allergic reactions or other complications.
  • Provide your medical history to your doctor or pharmacist, especially if you have poor blood circulation, immune system problems, or certain skin conditions such as rosacea or perioral dermatitis.
  • Avoid using clobetasol if there is an infection or sore in the intended treatment area.
  • Extended use or application of corticosteroid medications over large skin areas for an extended period may potentially reduce the body’s responsiveness to physical stress. Before undergoing surgery, emergency treatment, or facing a serious illness or injury, inform your doctor or dentist if you are currently using or have used this medication recently.
  • While it’s uncommon, prolonged use of this medication in children may potentially slow down their growth temporarily. Regular check-ups with a doctor are advised to monitor a child’s height.
  • During pregnancy, use clobetasol only when essential. Weigh the risks and benefits in consultation with your doctor.
  • The transfer of this drug into breast milk through skin application is unknown. However, similar medications pass into breast milk when taken orally. Discuss with your doctor before breastfeeding.

How soon will Dermasone Cream improve my condition?

Your skin should start to get better after you’ve used Dermasone Cream for a few days. You may need to use it for up to 4 weeks.

Are there any long-term side effects with Dermasone Cream?

Using Dermasone Cream continuously for a long time can mean some of the medicine gets into your bloodstream. If this happens, there’s a very small chance it can cause serious side effects. Once your skin condition has settled down your doctor will usually recommend that you stop using this medicine.
