Halobetasol topical is employed to address redness, swelling, itching, and discomfort associated with diverse skin conditions including both plaque psoriasis and eczema. This medication falls under the category of corticosteroids, operating by stimulating natural substances in the skin to diminish swelling, redness, and itching.

Uses and Dosage

Halobetasol is available in ointment, cream, foam, and lotion formulations for topical application. Typically, halobetasol is applied once or twice daily.

Use halobetasol precisely as directed; refrain from applying more or less than prescribed or using it more frequently than instructed by your doctor. Avoid applying it to areas not specified or for treating other skin conditions unless advised by your doctor.

To use halobetasol, apply a small amount of the cream, ointment, foam, or lotion to cover the affected skin area with a thin, even layer, and gently massage it in.

Note that halobetasol foam is flammable. Exercise caution around open flames, fire, and refrain from smoking while applying it and for a brief period afterward.

This medication is strictly for skin use. Avoid contact with eyes or mouth, and refrain from ingesting it. Usage on the face, genital and rectal areas, and skin folds like armpits should only occur under the direction of your doctor.

Unless instructed otherwise by your doctor, refrain from wrapping or bandaging the treated area as it may heighten the risk of side effects.

You should observe improvement in your skin condition within the initial 2 weeks of treatment. If your symptoms persist beyond this period, contact your doctor.

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
  • unwanted hair growth
  • change in skin color
  • bruising or shiny skin
  • red or purple blotches or lines under the skin

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

  • redness, swelling, or other signs of skin infection in the place where you applied halobetasol
  • severe skin rash
  • skin sores
  • sudden weight gain
  • unusual tiredness
  • muscle weakness
  • depression and irritability
  • blurred vision or other vision changes


  • Before initiating the use of halobetasol, inform your doctor or pharmacist of any allergies you may have, especially if you are allergic to halobetasol, other corticosteroids, or any other substances present in the product. Inactive ingredients in the medication may trigger allergic reactions or other complications.
  • Prior to using this medication, disclose your medical history to your doctor or pharmacist, particularly if you have conditions such as poor blood circulation, immune system disorders, or specific skin conditions like rosacea or perioral dermatitis.
  • Avoid using halobetasol if there is an existing infection or sore in the intended treatment area.
  • Extended use of corticosteroid medications over significant skin areas or prolonged periods may potentially diminish your body’s ability to respond to physical stress. Inform your doctor or dentist about your use of this medication, particularly before undergoing surgery, emergency treatment, or if you encounter a serious illness or injury.
  • While it is uncommon, prolonged use of this medication in children may temporarily slow down their growth. Regular check-ups with a doctor are recommended to monitor a child’s height during such use.
  • During pregnancy, only use this medication if deemed absolutely necessary. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • The passage of this drug into breast milk when applied topically is not well-established. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding while using this medication.

Can Ultravate Cream be used on the scalp?

Ultravate Cream is not FDA-approved to use on the scalp and might feel greasy if you apply it there. If you have skin inflammation on your scalp, such as scalp psoriasis, it’s best to check with your provider before applying it to that area.

How long does it take Ultravate Cream to work?

It usually takes several days to start seeing the effects of this medication. Ultravate Cream can take longer than other steroids to work, but let your provider know if you haven’t seen any improvement after using it for 2 weeks.
