Dermovate cream

Dermovate cream is a steroid medicine that is used for treating various skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis. The cream contains a fair amount of clobetasol propionate, which is also known as topical corticosteroid. It is used to treat skin condition symptoms such as swelling and itchiness. A prescription is required to use dermovate cream due to it being categorized as a steroid.

How Dermovate Cream Works
Dermovate is primarily made up of clobetasol propionate. When this ingredient is applied to skin it will cause inflammations to reduce. This is accomplished as the active ingredient will enter the skin cells and minimize the damage that can be done by the inflammatory substances in the skin cell. The overall result of this will be less swelling, itchiness, and more. As dermovate cream is very strong it can also be used for serious inflammatory skin conditions including Eczema and Psoriasis.

What Is Dermovate Cream Used For?
There are many skin issues that can be treated with dermovate cream. For simple skin problems it would not be a recommendable treatment option as the steroid ingredients are very potent. It is only a necessary treatment for serious conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis. It can treat other serious skin disorders such as lichen planus and discoid lupus erythematosus as well. Doctors may prescribe dermovate cream if a less potent corticosteroid was not effective at treating a skin problem. However, it is usually only provided as a temporary treatment for the skin problem.

Dermovate Cream vs. Dermovate Ointment
You have the opportunity to use either dermovate cream or dermovate ointment. You will want to choose the better of the two. Most people find that dermovate cream is much better due to the feeling that it gives the skin when it is applied. Dermovate ointment is often said to be very greasy when applied to skin. Dermovate cream is said to be not nearly as greasy and a lot more comfortable for routine use.

The better of the two may be determined by the type of skin that you have and the skin problem that you are treating. If your skin is extremely dry or you have scaly areas then the dermovate ointment may be preferable. On the other hand, if your skin is moist and weepy in areas then the dermovate cream may be preferable. Your doctor or specialist should be able to choose the better of the two for you so do not stress on this part.

Using Dermovate Cream
When using dermovate cream you will be required to apply it to the affected skin either once or twice each day. After results start to show you will be able to use the cream less often. The specific frequency of applying the dermovate cream will be decided by your doctor though. Just follow the instructions you are provided for the best results.

Dermovate cream is only used as a temporary treatment for your skin condition. It is usually limited to a treatment period of one month. After two weeks there should be noticeable results. If you do not notice any results between the two and four week period then you should consult visit your doctor for assistance. Dermovate cream may be used again in the future to control flare-ups but this will only be under the advice of your doctor.

Dermovate is a highly potent topical corticosteroid which can be used to effectively treat symptoms of Eczema, Psoriasis, and various other serious skin inflammation conditions. If less potent corticosteroids do not work for treating your skin condition then your doctor may recommend that you use dermovate cream. Most people do experience noticeable results when using dermovate cream but the results will vary by person. To find out more about dermovate cream you should speak with your doctor or read up further about it online.
