Buy Clobetasone

Clobetasone is a hormone cream and a corticosteroid. It is used for curing skin inflammation diseases such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

On using Clobetasone you may experience side effects such as hypersensitivity, patches, increased hair growth, irritation, itching, weight gain, high blood pressure and burning sensations. Should your reactions persist or become severe over time contact your health care provider immediately.

Before using this medication have a discussion with your doctor and notify him/her if: you are allergic to any ingredient contained within Clobetasone, you have any allergies to any foods, medicines or substances, you have any fungal infection/cold sores/ chicken pox, you have acne, you are already taking any prescription or non-prescription drugs, you are pregnant or are breastfeeding.

This medication is available in cream and ointment form. Ideally the dosage should be prescribed by your doctor. However, the usual dose in both adults and children is about 30-60 grams which needs to be applied twice a day on the concerned area in a very thin layer. The duration of the treatment needs to be fixed by your physician.

How To Use

This medication is for use on the skin only. Do not use it on the face, groin, or underarms unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Wash your hands before using. Clean and dry the affected area as directed. Then apply a small amount of medication in a thin layer on the skin and rub in gently, usually 2 to 3 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Wash your hands after use, unless you are using this product to treat the hands.

Do not bandage, cover, or wrap the treated area unless you are instructed to do so by your doctor. If you are using this medication on a child's diaper area, do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants.

Do not use large amounts of this medication or apply this more often or for a longer period than directed. Doing so may increase the absorption of this medication into your blood, an effect that may increase your risk of side effects. Ask your doctor about ways to reduce this risk if you have large areas of the body to be treated. Adults should not use more than 100 grams of this medication in a week unless directed by the doctor.

Avoid getting this medication in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If this occurs, wipe off the medication and rinse thoroughly with water. Caution is advised if you are using this medication near the eyes because doing so may worsen or cause increased pressure in the eyes (glaucoma). Ask your doctor for more information.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 1 week.

How does Eumovate work?

Eumovate cream and ointment both contain the active ingredient clobetasone butyrate 0.05%, which is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid. It's a moderate strength corticosteroid used to reduce inflammation in the skin.

Skin inflammation happens when an allergic reaction or irritation of the skin causes various substances to be released in the skin that make blood vessels widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.

Clobetasone acts inside the skin cells to stop the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces the swelling, redness and itching and so helps prevent scratching that can further irritate the skin.

Eumovate ointment is more greasy than the cream. It is more suitable for very dry, scaly areas of skin, whereas moist or weepy skin is best treated with the cream.

Paediatric population

Children are more likely to develop local and systemic adverse reactions due to the use of local corticosteroids because of their higher surface area to body mass ratio and, in general, require a shorter treatment.

Particularly, in infants and toddlers the diaper can be considered as an occlusive dressing and therefore can enhance absorption

In infants and children under 12 years of age, long-term continuous topical corticosteroid therapy should be avoided where possible, as adrenal and growth suppression is more likely to occur.
