Product Overview

Clobetasol Scalp Lotion contains the potent corticosteroid clobetasol propionate, known for its efficacy in treating inflammatory scalp & skin conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, and rash. This medication suppresses inflammation and reduces redness, swelling, and itching by inhibiting inflammatory mediators.

Available in lotion and scalp foam forms, both with a strength of 0.5%, Clobetasol Scalp Lotion 0.05% is recommended for adult use, applied twice daily to affected areas. It is not recommended for children under 12, as its safety and efficacy have not been established in this age group.

Precautions include not applying on damaged skin or alongside other topical corticosteroids to avoid adverse effects. If a dose is missed, it should be applied as soon as remembered or skipped if close to the next scheduled dose. Overdose is unlikely to cause severe issues unless ingested; however, emergency medical attention should be sought in such scenarios.

How Does Clobetasol Scalp Lotion Work?

Clobetasol Scalp Lotion works by suppressing inflammation in the skin. It is a high-potency corticosteroid that reduces swelling, redness, and itching by inhibiting the release of inflammatory mediators. Specifically, it blocks the production of cytokines, which play a pivotal role in inflammation. Clobetasol also helps restore the skin barrier, promotes normal skin cell turnover, and reduces abnormal cell growth. This leads to improved skin function and reduced symptoms. When applied topically to the scalp, it is absorbed into the skin layers and acts directly at the site of inflammation.
