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: 

  • Cream
  • Gel
  • Ointment
  • Spray
  • Foam 

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: 

  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • 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
  • Itching
  • 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: 

  • Hypotension
  • Dizziness
  • Excessive tiredness
  • Fainting
  • High blood sugar
  • Excessive urination
  • Dehydration
  • Hypertension

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Clobetasol

What to Avoid While Using Clobetasol?

There are several things you should avoid when using Clobetasol such as: 

  • Excessive sun exposure – Clobetasol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun and therefore increase your risk of sunburns.
  • Overusing it – Only apply the prescribed amount of Clobetasol to the affected areas. Avoid applying more than you should or using it for an extended period of time without consulting your doctor first.
  • Cuts – Avoid using Clobetasol on any cuts or open sores.
  • Dressing – Avoid covering the area with a bandage or dressing unless your doctor advises you to do so.
  • Oral Corticosteroids – Avoid taking oral corticosteroids while using Clobetasol, as this can increase the risk of side effects.

The above list isn’t exhaustive and there could be other things you should avoid while using Clobetasol. Speak to your doctor for further advice.

How Long Does It Take for Clobetasol to Work?

The exact time it takes for Clobetasol to work will depend on a few different factors such as the severity of your condition and your individual response to the drug. This is something that your doctor will be able to explain in more detail when you receive your prescription.

Generally speaking, you might start to notice improvements in your symptoms within a few hours or up to a few days. For full benefits, it may take up to a few weeks.

What Is the Typical Dosage for Clobetasol?

The dosage will vary depending on the form of Clobetasol you use. Your healthcare provider will typically provide you with instructions on how much to use for each application. Generally for cream or ointment, the recommended dose is a thin layer applied once or twice per day (as directed).

It’s important not to exceed the prescribed dose of Clobetasol and to follow your healthcare provider’s directions as instructed. Doing so may increase your risk of experiencing side effects from this medication.

For How Long Can You Use Clobetasol?

While the duration of use for Clobetasol will depend on your individual circumstances, generally this medication is used for a short period of time. It should not be used for more than 2-4 weeks at a time due to an increased risk of side effects.
