What Is Clobetasol?
Clobetasol is a powerful corticosteroid that targets inflammation throughout the body. Its primary use and purpose is to treat a plethora of skin conditions that result in swelling, itching, or excessive redness.
This is a topical drug that is usually found in the following forms:
How Does Clobetasol Work?
As a member of the corticosteroid family, Clobetasol works by reducing inflammation in your body. It will suppress the numerous inflammatory genes that are activated by immune system responses to certain diseases or allergens.
Consequently, you will see a reduction in inflammation in the affected areas of your body. There will be less redness and welling too, while you should also see a decrease in itchiness.
What Is Clobetasol Used For?
While Clobetasol is a highly potent corticosteroid, it is only used topically. This means it targets a specific range of conditions caused by immune system responses, mainly relating to your skin.
Some common uses of Clobetasol are to treat the following:
- Allergic rashes
- Lichen sclerosis
What Are the Side Effects of Clobetasol?
There are two groups of side effects associated with Clobetasol. Some are common and mild while others are rare and severe.
The common side effects of Clobetasol include:
- Minor burning
- Slight irritation
- Minor swelling
These usually appear when you apply the drug and can subside very quickly. If they don’t go away within a couple of weeks – or start to get worse – you should stop using Clobetasol and speak to a qualified medical professional.
The rarer and more severe side effects of Clobetasol are:
- Excessive tiredness
- High blood sugar
- Excessive urination
With these side effects, it’s crucial to get medical help right away. Call your doctor or contact your local Emergency Room as soon as you notice these warning signs.
How Do You Take Clobetasol?
Clobetasol can be taken in a variety of ways depending on the form of the drug you’ve been given. Keep in mind that dosages vary depending on their form, but your doctor will explain all of this to you when you obtain your online prescription.
Listen to the dosages outlined by your doctor and read the informational sheet to ensure you’re taking this drug correctly.
When applying topical Clobetasol to your body, be sure you have cleaned the affected area, and that it’s also dry. Apply as much as directed and gently rub it into your skin. Allow it to dry before covering it with clothing and avoid wrapping it in bandages unless your doctor says otherwise.
Keep using Clobetasol until your symptoms subside – or for as long as directed by your doctor. Keep an eye on your symptoms to see if inflammation and itchiness decrease. If they don’t – and you’ve been taking this drug for numerous weeks – consult your doctor and they will either increase your dose or prescribe an alternative treatment.
