Dermovate Scalp Application contains Clobetasol propionate,  a very potent topical corticosteroid that is indicated for use in short courses for conditions that do not respond satisfactorily to less active steroids.

It is indicated for use in steroid responsive dermatoses of the scalp such as:

– Psoriasis

– Recalcitrant dermatoses

Precautions: Owing to the flammable nature of the product, Dermovate Scalp Application should be kept away from open fire and flames and all sources of ignition, including smoking, during and immediately after use.

Expiry – 10/2024

Adults, Elderly and Children over 1 year

A small quantity of clobetasol should be applied to the scalp night and morning until improvement is noticeable. It may then be possible to sustain improvement by applying once a day, or less frequently.

Paediatric population

Children are more likely to develop local and systemic side effects of topical corticosteroids and, in general, require shorter courses and less potent agents than adults.

Care should be taken when using clobetasol propionate to ensure the amount applied is the minimum that provides therapeutic benefit.

Duration of treatment for children and infants

Courses should be limited if possible to a few days and reviewed weekly.

Elderly

Clinical studies have not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients. The greater frequency of decreased hepatic or renal function in the elderly may delay elimination if systemic absorption occurs. Therefore the minimum quantity should be used for the shortest duration to achieve the desired clinical benefit.

Renal / Hepatic Impairment

In case of systemic absorption (when application is over a large surface area for a prolonged period) metabolism and elimination may be delayed therefore increasing the risk of systemic toxicity. Therefore the minimum quantity should be used for the shortest duration to achieve the desired clinical benefit.

Ingredients: Each 1g of scalp application contains 0.5mg of clobetasol propionate (0.05% w/w), Carbomer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide, Purified Water

• if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to clobetasol propionate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in Section 6)
