About Closalve Cream 30gm

Closalve Cream 30gm contains clobetasol, which is a topical corticosteroid. It is used for the treatment of auto-immune 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 healthy cells of the body, causing inflammation. Closalve Cream 30gm can suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation. 

Closalve Cream 30gm is available only for topical use in various forms including cream, ointment, and shampoo. Your doctor will advise you which dosage form of clobetasol is suitable based on the infected place. And also suggested how often you need to take Closalve Cream 30gm based on your medical condition. While applying, make sure it does not come in contact with the eye. In case Closalve Cream 30gm comes in contact with eyes accidentally, rinse with warm water thoroughly. Please do not use it on unaffected areas or for other skin infections without informing your doctor.

Common side-effects of Closalve Cream 30gm are burning or stinging sensation in the eye, itching, redness, dryness, and swelling of the skin at the site of application. Long-term use of Closalve Cream 30gm may have an effect on the adrenal gland and cause abnormal effects. It may also vision problems in some cases.
