Clobetasol Propionate is a strong corticosteroid, used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as dermatitis, allergies, rashes and eczema.
Clobetasol Propionate is a popular medicine that is generally prescribed in the treatment of the patients with skin diseases in order to reduce the itching, redness and swelling of the affected parts of the body. Clobetasol Propionate is meant only for external use. Patients should not allow the medication to get into their eyes, nose and mouth. Patients should also avoid putting dressings, other skin medications or bandages on the area which is treated with Clobetasol Propionate Pharmaniaga.
Before beginning the treatment with Clobetasol Propionate the patients should inform their doctor or personal healthcare provider if they are allergic to any of this drug's components or to any other corticosteroids such as Prednisone or hydrocortisone. Patients should also tell the doctor if they have other allergies. Before using Clobetasol Propionate patients must tell their PD about their medical history, especially if they have immune system problems, poor blood circulation or other skin conditions such as dermatitis. In very rare cases this medicine might be absorbed into the bloodstream and this condition will require treatment also based on corticosteroids. This may happen in children who are using it or in the case of individuals who have been using it for long periods of time. Pregnant women should not use Clobetasol Propionate Pharmaniaga, unless it is clearly needed; however, they should discuss with their personal healthcare provider the benefits and risks of such a treatment.
Patients should use Clobetasol Propionate only on the skin and not on the groin, underarms, face, unless their doctor or personal healthcare provider advises them to do so. You should wash and dry your hands very well and thoroughly clean the affected area before applying Clobetasol Propionate Pharmaniaga. This medicine should be applied in a thin film to the affected area and then rubbed. This process should be done by patients two times a day, except the cases when the doctor has prescribed them other instructions. When the patients must apply this medicine near the eyes, they should be extra careful not to put it in their eyes because this can lead to a medical condition known as glaucoma.
Clobetasol Propionate should be applied directly on the affected skin areas at least twice a day. The treatment should not last longer than four weeks, as this medicine contains a very strong topical corticosteroid. Usually the dose should not be more than 50g a week.
You should not use a medicine which looks discolored or that contains any sort of particle. Do not stop your treatment with Clobetasol Propionate without your physician's approval, even if you feel that your condition has not improved at all. If you feel that your treatment with this medicine is not working properly, you should alert your personal health care provider.
In most of the cases that involve an overdose of Clobetasol Propionate Pharmaniaga, the medicine is absorbed in an abnormally high amount in the patient's blood stream; this can lead to systemic effects. The systemic absorption usually cases reversible adrenal suppression which may eventually lead to an insufficiency of corticosteroids in the organism. In other cases the patients may experience symptoms of Cushing's syndrome, glucosuria and even hyperglycemia which are also due to the systemic absorption.
It is important to try to take each of your scheduled doses of Clobetasol Propionate at their due time. However, if you happen to miss taking one of your prescribed doses of this product you should use it as soon as you recall. If it is already time for another dose, we advise you to forget about the one that you have missed and to proceed with your regular dosing schedule.
