About Cloderm Cream

Cloderm Cream belongs to a class of topical corticosteroid medications. It is used for the treatment of autoimmune skin disorders such as psoriasis (scaly, itchy, and red patches on the skin), lichen planus (purplish, itchy, and flat bumps on the wrists, forearms, or legs), discoid lupus erythematosus (red, coin-shaped scales or crusts on the scalp, cheeks, and ears), and eczema (red and itchy skin). Autoimmune skin disorders are conditions in which immune cells attack the body's healthy cells, causing inflammation. Cloderm Cream can suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation.

Cloderm Cream comprises Clobetasol, an active corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory properties on the skin. It reduces swelling, redness, and itching by inhibiting the production of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause inflammation. Thus, Cloderm Cream aids in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and discoid lupus erythematosus.

Always use the right amount of Cloderm Cream as advised by the doctor or pharmacist. It would be best to use Cloderm Cream regularly to get the maximum benefit. When Cloderm Cream is applied to the skin, some persons experience a burning or stinging sensation for a few minutes. After a few days of use, this will no longer occur.

Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Clobetasol or any of the other ingredients present in this medicine. Do not use Cloderm Cream to treat acne, rosacea (facial flushing on and around the nose), perioral dermatitis (red or scaly rashes around the mouth), anogenital pruritis (itching around the anus or genitals), itchy, broken, or infected skin which is not inflamed, and widespread plaque psoriasis (except single lesions). While applying, make sure it does not come in contact with the eye. If Cloderm Cream accidentally comes in contact with eyes, rinse with warm water thoroughly. Please do not use it on unaffected areas or for other skin infections without informing your doctor. Do not use Cloderm Cream in children under 12 years of age without a doctor's advice.
