  • Allergic/Irritant contact dermatitis
  • Discoid lupus erythematosus
  • An eruption of hard nodules on the skin with intense itching

  • Clean your hands before applying the cream/ointment to the treatment area
  • Evenly apply a thin layer of dermovate to the affected areas
  • Use a loose dressing to cover the area being treated
  • Clean your hands after applying the medicine.

  • Rosacea
  • Bacterial skin infections such as impetigo
  • Itchy genitals and anus

  • Perioral Dermatitis
  • Fungal skin infections such as thrush, ringworm, and athlete's foot
  • Nappy Rash
  • Dermatitis around the mouth
  • Viral skin infections such as chickenpox, shingles, cold sores, or herpes simplex

How does Dermovate cream work?

Dermovate contains Clobetasol Propionate, a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation by decreasing the release of inflammatory chemicals in skin cells. This helps alleviate swelling, itching, and redness associated with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Dermovate cream isn't suitable for broken skin, open wounds, or areas affected by certain conditions like viral, bacterial, or fungal skin infections, acne, or itching without inflammation.

Are there alternative treatments to Dermovate?

Other steroid treatments can be used in place of Dermovate, they include Eumovate and Betnovate. Aveeno and E45 cream are some of the non-steroid creams used in place of Dermovate, however, it is advisable to consult your doctor to get the best treatment option based on your symptoms.
