- Product Code: GX_DMSCP
- Availability: In Stock
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, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.
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.
Dermovate scalp application is thinner and easier to apply to the scalp than Dermovate ointment and cream. It is used to treat severe inflammatory disorders of the scalp.
The liquid should be applied sparingly to the areas of the scalp that need treating using the nozzle of the bottle.
You can rub the liquid into your scalp if you wish, but then leave it to dry. The clobetasol will be left on the scalp - it should not be washed off. If you need to wash your hair you should wash and dry your hair before applying the scalp application.
The scalp application is usually applied twice a day. As soon as the condition starts to improve, you should use it less frequently
What is it used for?
* Eczema affecting the scalp.
* Psoriasis affecting the scalp.
