Clobetasol topical is prescribed to alleviate the symptoms associated with a range of scalp and skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema. These symptoms may encompass itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling, inflammation, and discomfort. Clobetasol belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids, which function by stimulating natural substances within the skin to diminish swelling, redness, and itching.

Uses and Dosage

Apply this medication exclusively to the skin; refrain from using it on the face, groin, or underarms unless explicitly instructed by your doctor.

Prior to application, ensure your hands are clean and dry. Thoroughly cleanse and dry the affected area. Administer a thin layer of the medication to the affected region and gently massage it in as per your doctor’s instructions, typically twice daily. Avoid bandaging, covering, or wrapping the area unless explicitly instructed by your doctor.

After applying the medication, wash your hands unless you are utilizing it to treat your hands. When applying it in the vicinity of the eyes, take care to prevent contact with the eyes to avoid exacerbating or causing glaucoma. Likewise, avoid introducing the medication into the nose or mouth; in case of accidental contact with these areas, rinse thoroughly with copious amounts of water.

Utilize this medication solely for the prescribed condition. Do not extend its use beyond 2 consecutive weeks or exceed 50 grams per week unless specifically directed by your doctor.

Should your condition persist or worsen after two weeks, inform your doctor.
