Clobetasol Propionate Drug Information

Drug Information: Clobetasol propionate is classified as a strong topical corticosteroid. Topical corticosteroids are the same as topical steroids. Topical steroids in addition to moisturizing (emollient) are used to treat inflammatory skin diseases such as eczema and dermatitis. Topical steroids are used when the symptoms of eczema or dermatitis recur. Clobetasol propionate relieves inflammation, itching, and redness, thereby reducing the recurrence of symptoms. This medicine is not a cure for the disease, but it will help relieve the symptoms. Short-term courses of clobetasol propionate may also be prescribed to treat psoriasis.

Clobetasol propionate is generally not suitable for children, although sometimes, in certain circumstances, a dermatologist may prescribe short courses of the drug for a child.

Different types of this drug are available. A cream will be prescribed to moisturize the affected areas of your skin, and if your skin is dry, the ointment is a good choice for you. Clobetasol propionate shampoo is also available, which is used only for the scalp.

A type of clobetasol propionate is also available that contains two antibacterial agents (called neomycin and nystatin). This type of clobetasol propionate may be prescribed for short-term use when the skin is infected and is usually used twice a day for only one week.
