Dermovate Cream – Clobetasol Cream, 30G
Looking for an effective way to soothe irritated, itchy skin? Clobetasol propionate, the active ingredient in Dermovate Cream, has anti-inflammatory and antipruritic properties that can quickly relieve uncomfortable symptoms. This topical steroid is highly effective at reducing redness and swelling associated with a variety of skin conditions. Plus, it helps to control the production of inflammatory mediators that can further aggravate the skin. Apply a thin layer of Dermovate Cream to the affected area 2-3 times daily until symptoms improve.
What is Dermovate Cream used for?
Dermovate cream is used to help reduce the redness and itchiness of certain skin problems. These skin problems include:
- frequently relapsing eczema
- psoriasis (thickened patches of inflamed, red skin, often covered by silvery scales), excluding widespread plaque psoriasis
- lichen planus, (a skin disease that causes itchy, reddish-purple, flat-topped bumps on the wrists, forearms or lower legs)
- discoid lupus erythematosus (a disease of the skin most often affecting the face, ears and scalp causing scarring and increased sensitivity of the affected skin to sunlight)
- dermatitis and other skin conditions that have not responded to milder steroid creams or ointments.
What is Eczema?
Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) is the most common form of eczema, a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked.
Atopic eczema is more common in children, often developing before their first birthday. But it may also develop for the first time in adults.
It’s usually a long-term (chronic) condition, although it can improve significantly, or even clear completely, in some children as they get older.
Atopic eczema causes the skin to become itchy, dry, cracked and sore.
Some people only have small patches of dry skin, but others may experience widespread inflamed skin all over the body.
Inflamed skin can become red on lighter skin, and darker brown, purple or grey on darker skin. This can also be more difficult to see on darker skin.
Although atopic eczema can affect any part of the body, it most often affects the hands, insides of the elbows, backs of the knees and the face and scalp in children.
People with atopic eczema usually have periods when symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when symptoms become more severe (flare-ups).
