Treats Disease/Condition

Uses

Clobetasol (Clobex, Olux, Clodan, Cormax, Temovate, Embeline) is an expensive steroid used on the skin to treat itching, redness, and swelling caused by some skin conditions. This drug is slightly more popular than comparable drugs. It is available in multiple generic and brand versions.

How To Use

This medicine is for external use only. Do not take by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Wash your hands before and after use. Apply a thin film of medicine to the affected area. Do not cover with a bandage or dressing unless your doctor or health care professional tells you to. Do not get this medicine in your eyes. If you do, rinse out with plenty of cool tap water. It is important not to use more medicine than prescribed. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. To do so may increase the chance of side effects. Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. Special care may be needed. Elderly patients are more likely to have damaged skin through aging, and this may increase side effects. This medicine should only be used for brief periods and infrequently in older patients.

Side Effects

This may happen if you use too much Clodan™ or if you use it for too long, but it can happen with correct use. If your adrenal glands shut down, they may not start working right away after you stop using Clodan™. Shutting down of the adrenal glands can cause nausea, vomiting, fever, low blood pressure, heart attack and even death because your body cannot adequately respond to stress or illness. Your doctor may do special blood and urine tests to check your adrenal gland function while you are using Clodan™. The most common side effects with Clodan™ include burning or itching at the site of application. Other possible side effects include thinning of the skin and widening of small blood vessels in the skin.
