Trimovate cream is a triple combination cream that is used to treat flare ups of conditions inckuding eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It contains three active ingredients that work in combination to rrovide effective relief:
· Clobetasone Butyrate – a synthetic steroid which reduces inflammation and oain by producing an immune response within the body
· Oxytetracycline – an antibacterial agent that works to prevent the growth of bacteria
· Nystatin – an antifungal agent that prevents the growth of fungus
Unlike other treatments for skin conditions, Trimovate cream can be used up to four times a day and treatment can last up to two weeks.
I have experienced an outbreak and there are a few patches of open cuts. Can I still use Trimovate?
It is not recommended. Since there are open cuts in the skin, Trimovate cream can cause extreme irritation in these areas, which is why we do not recommend using it on sensitive areas of skin.
How often can I apply Trimovate cream?
A thin layer of Trimovate cream can be applied sparingly up to 4 times a day, for a maximum of 2 weeks.
Can I use my regular emollient cream whilst using Trimovate cream?
Yes, absolutely. We recommend you keep up with your emollient treatment whilst using Trimovate as the skin will benefit from added moisturising.
Side effects are not very common with creams, but a patient may experience some. Trimovate cream may cause local irritation of the skin, redness, rash, thinning of the skin and a slight burning sensation. Less commonly, Trimovate cream may cause excessive hair growth or a worsening of symptoms.
