Eumovate cream and ointment is a prescribed-only steroid medication, primarily used to treat severe forms of inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

Eumovate treatment provides quick relief from redness, itchiness, and swelling and it is used once or twice daily by applying directly on the affected areas.

What is Eumovate?

Eumovate cream and ointment contain an active ingredient known as Clobetasone butyrate 0.05%. It helps treat certain skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.

Eumovate is best in reducing inflammation and relieving symptoms such as redness, and itching associated with skin conditions

How does Eumovate cream/ointment work?

When your skin is exposed to an allergen, your immune system responds by releasing inflammatory chemicals that trigger your blood vessels to widen which causes itching, swelling, and discomfort.

When you apply Eumovate cream or ointment, the active ingredient clobetasone is absorbed in the skin cells. It stops the release of large quantities of inflammatory chemicals released by the immune system.

This reduces swelling, itching, redness, and further scratching.

How to apply Eumovate cream/ointment?

  • Wash your hands before applying Eumovate to the area of treatment
  • Gently apply a thin layer of Eumovate on the affected area and rub it gently until it is fully absorbed
  • Clean your hands after applying the medicine
  • Apply 1 or 2 times a day as instructed by your doctor.

⚠️ If you accidentally apply the medicine to your eyes, nose, or mouth, rinse with lots of cold water
