Expired clobetasol

I want to know if I can use clobetasol cream two years past the expiration date? If so, how well will it work and is it safe? ## When it comes to anything expired, I first want to state that expiration dates in general are arbitrary figures. Just because something expires on a specific day of the year doesn't mean it's instantly ineffective and unsafe the minute the clock strikes that number. However when something is in ointment form and has other excipients that make up its composition, then you also have to take into consideration the shelf life of these substances which may or may not last as long as the primary active ingredient. With that said, I think it all comes down to proper storage and whether you care if the ointment isn't necessarily as effective as it could be...

Is lobate gm skin cream effective for treating molluscum

i have molluscum on my face since last 6months i m tired of taking tablets using ointment now doctor hs prescribed me lobate cream. So,will it give me good results or not? ## We had the same experience when our little boy caught molluscum at pre-school. We thought it was just a rash but it got worse and worse. After many months we took him to a medical specialist who suggested either minor surgery or just leave it and do nothing! ... and we paid her good money for the advice. The problem with the advice from doctors to just leave it is that it is contagious. So then his little sister caught it followed by our new born. It wasn't long until my husband and I also caught it. We understandably had had enough by this stage - late as it was. We researched the net and talk to our mothers i...

clobetasol propionate 0.05% usage

Can clobetasol propionate .05% be used to treat athlete's foot fungus on my feet? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? No, this is a steroid medication, so it won't help with athlete's foot, which is a fungal infection. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation and dryness. To treat it, you need an antifungal cream, there are many available over the counter, if your doctor approves of your using them. Alternatively, they can prescribe something for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I use renovate as an skin antifungal? not athlete's foot ## Can this ointment be purchased over-the-counter? I was using it on my hair at one time prescribed by a hair doctor. Now I find my hair in the same condition.

Clobetasol Propionate Ointment Application

Can you use clobetasol propionate ointment USP 0.05 on the vaginal area? ## Based on my research, Clobetasol topical is used to help relieve redness, itching, swelling, or other discomfort caused by skin conditions. From what I've read, most of the nerve endings are just outside the vaginal opening, so it would not be of much use internally in any means. "Unless instructed specifically by your doctor or gynecologist", you should only use it outside the vaginal opening (and a thin layer at that, because it is very potent). You can learn more about this drug on the page for Clobetasol Details I hope this info helps! ## If it hasn't been specially formulated for vaginal use, then no. Using something there inappropriately may cause infections, irritation and other medical pr...

Clobetasol Propionate Cream Usp 0.5% - What Is It Used For?

I was given this tube of cream but, what is it supposed to do? ## I'm curious as to why someone would give you a prescription based tube of cream without telling you what it was. Bad business... Clobetasol propionate cream and ointment contain the active compound clobetasol propionate; a synthetic corticosteroid, for topical dermatologic use. It is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Treatment beyond 2 consecutive weeks is not recommended, and the total dosage should not exceed 50 g/week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## I was given this foam and because my scalp sores are ...

use of clobetasol salicylic acid ointment

I have pimples on my face, that's why I want to use salicylic acid ointment. ## Does anyone know about the availability of Clobetasol Salicylic Acid Ointment online or if it requires a doctor's prescription? ## Clobetasol is a steroid class medication, so there is risk of it actually causing acne, rather than helping alleviate it, according to NIH reports. Other side effects may include skin redness, irritation, and skin flaking. MOHD, it depends on where you live, the U.S. requires a prescription, but that is not applicable in all countries. What other medications have you both tried?
