Dermovate cream is a topical treatment for more severe forms of skin irritation. Also commonly referred to as Dermovate Ointment, Dermovate Cream is considered one of the strongest treatments for flare-ups of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Dermovate Cream contains the active ingredient Clobetasol Propionate, which is a potent corticosteroid that reduces inflammation, redness and itchiness via a triggered immune response in the body. Dermovate cream should be used sparingly and only if other less potent treatments have not worked to control your skin condition, since this cream is potent.


Can I use an emollient of hydrating cream whilst Dermovate cream/ointment? 

Yes, we encourage you to use an emolient or other type of hydrating cream alongside Dermovate cream/ointment as your skin will benefit from this.


How often should I use Dermovate cream/ointment?

We recommend that you use a thin layer of Dermovate Cream very sparingly, usually applied 1 or 2 times a day. Do not use Dermovate Cream more than two times daily, as its potent formula is not recommended for extensive use.
