CLOBETASOL 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. CLOBETASOL can suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation.
CLOBETASOL 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, CLOBETASOL aids in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and discoid lupus erythematosus.
Always use the right amount of CLOBETASOL as advised by the doctor or pharmacist. It would be best to use CLOBETASOL regularly to get the maximum benefit. When CLOBETASOL 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 CLOBETASOL 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 CLOBETASOL 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 CLOBETASOL in children under 12 years of age without a doctor's advice.
Autoimmune skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and discoid lupus erythematosus
The skin gets inflamed when chemical mediators release chemicals into the skin that cause inflammation. It leads to rashes, swelling, and itching, which can be treated by CLOBETASOL. It targets the immune system and lowers the immune response, providing some time for the inflamed skin to heal.
Inform your doctor before using CLOBETASOL, if you have previously had an allergic reaction (hypersensitivity) with another steroid. If there is an overdose, clean the area thoroughly and re-apply the medicine. Apply the medication carefully if you are using it on eyelids or near the eyes, as there is a risk of cataracts or glaucoma if the drug enters the eye frequently. CLOBETASOL can enter the skin easily and may cause skin thinning because of repeated application. So, apply it carefully when using on broken or damaged skin and large surface area of skin. Inform your doctor immediately if you experience vision problems or any other abnormal signs. Do not use CLOBETASOL at the same time as other creams or ointments such as a moisturiser. Wait at least 30 minutes between using clobetasol and any other product.
