Dermovate ointment contains a potent corticosteroid, clobetasol propionate 0.05%, which reduces skin inflammation.

Dermovate ointment contains an active ingredient called clobetasol propionate 0.05%, which belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids. Dermovate ointment is a potent corticosteroid that helps reduce inflammation in skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis (excluding widespread plaque psoriasis), lichen planus, and discoid lupus erythematosus.

Skin inflammation occurs when there is an allergic reaction or there is an irritant because of which the skin releases substances that make the blood vessels in the localised area widen. It results in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.

Clobetasol propionate works when it is absorbed into the skin cells and stops the cells from secreting substances that cause inflammation. Dermovate ointment is best suited for being used on dry, scaly areas of the skin, while the cream version of Dermovate is for the moist areas of the body.

Dermovate ointment is a safe medicine for people who suffer from skin inflammation. But if you have any of these few conditions, you should make your doctor aware of these factors before you start using this ointment:
