Dermovate is a very strong topical treatment used to treat the itching, redness, and swelling of certain skin conditions, including:
It belongs to a group of medications called corticosteroids, or steroids. These drugs are designed to act like hormones to reduce inflammation.
Dermovate is a short-term treatment that should be applied for no more than 4 consecutive weeks, due to the fact that it is very potent.
It is available as a cream, ointment, foam, scalp treatment, or shampoo - for prescription only.
Conditions such as eczema and psoriasis cause the skin to become red, flaky, and mildly to extremely itchy.
Dermovate is a topical treatment that contains 0.05% clobetasol propionate, which is a strong type of steroid.
When applied to the skin, it works directly on the skin’s cells to target inflammation and improve the symptoms of these conditions.
One study was conducted on Dermovate to determine how well the treatment worked. 7g of ointment was applied to the patients with psoriasis (or a similar skin condition) for either 2 or 3 consecutive weeks.
Dermovate was shown to work very effectively at improving itching, redness, and flaking. In fact,
Most of the patients experienced a complete clearing of their symptoms during the course of the study.
The study was also conducted on Betamethasone, which is another psoriasis medication. Results showed that both treatments were equally effective in clearing symptoms.
Dermovate is available with a strength of 0.05%. This means that each gram of product (whether it's cream, ointment, liquid, or shampoo) contains 0.5mg or 500mcg of the active ingredient clobetasol.
Before using Dermovate, it’s important to note the precautions.
Talk to your doctor if, during treatment:
You should always follow your doctor’s instructions when taking a prescription medicine. However, a general guide to using Dermovate is as follows:
Dermovate should be applied once or twice a day (aim to wait at least 8-12 hours in between uses). Your doctor will probably prescribe its use for one or two weeks.
Because it is so strong, Dermovate should not be used for more than 4 weeks in a row.
The amount of treatment you should use depends on how much skin you are treating.
Sometimes, the patient leaflet will refer to ‘fingertip’ units, to help you know how much to use.
When squeezing treatment from the tube, one fingertip’s worth should be enough to cover an area twice as big as your palm.
For different areas of the body, you can follow this guide:
|Body part||Amount of cream (in fingertip units)|
|Face and neck||21⁄2|
|One arm (not including the hand)||3|
|Both sides of one hand||1|
Don’t worry if you need a little more or less - every person is different. Just ensure that the affected area is coated properly in a thin, even layer of cream or ointment.
Dermovate is safe to use for the majority of adults who have inflammatory skin conditions. However, it may not be suitable for you if:
As is the case with all medicines, there is a chance that you will experience side effects whilst using Dermovate on your skin. Not everybody gets them, but if you do, they should clear up once you finish treatment.
