Contains the active ingredient:  Clobetasol Propionate, which is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid.

Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens due to irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen, resulting in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.

When clobetasol is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itching.

There is a range of potencies of corticosteroids applied to the skin. Clobetasol is a very potent corticosteroid that is applied to the skin to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders, such as psoriasis, that have not responded to milder steroids.

What is it used for ?

It is used to treat psoriasis of the scalp. It should be applied thinly directly onto a dry scalp once daily, taking care to massage the shampoo into the affected areas of skin on the scalp. The shampoo should be left on for 15 minutes; the scalp must NOT be covered (eg with a shower cap) during this time. After 15 minutes the shampoo can be rinsed off with water, or the hair can be washed using your regular shampoo. Hair can then be dried as usual.
