GlaxoSmithKline Dermovate Cream 25 G

Read all of this leaflet carefully before you start using this medicine.

Dermovate contains a medicine called clobetasol propionate. It belongs to a group of medicines called steroids. It helps to reduce swelling and irritation.  Dermovate is used to help reduce the redness and itchiness of certain skin problems. These skin problems include eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis that have not responded to milder steroid creams or ointments.

Do not use Dermovate:
• if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to clobetasol propionate or any of the other ingredients of Dermovate (listed in Section 6)
• on a child under 1 years old
• to treat any of the following skin problems, it could make them worse:
- acne
- severe flushing of skin on and around your nose (rosacea)
- spotty red rash around your mouth (perioral dermatitis)
- itching around your back passage or private parts - unless your doctor has told you to do so
- viral infections, such as cold sores, herpes or chicken pox
- fungal infections, such as ringworm, athletes foot or thrush
- skin blisters or sores that are caused by an infection.

Do not use if any of the above apply to you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Dermovate.

Take special care with Dermovate
Check with your doctor or pharmacist before using your medicine if:
• you are applying the cream under an airtight dressing, including a child’s nappy. These dressings make it easier for the active ingredient to pass through the skin. It is possible to accidentally end up using too much cream.
• you have psoriasis, your doctor will want to see you more often.

If you are not sure if any of the above apply to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine if you are pregnant, might become pregnant or are breast-feeding.

How to use Dermovate
Always use Dermovate exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Using this medicine
• You usually apply a thin layer of Dermovate 1 or 2 times a day. This may be reduced as your skin begins to get better, or stopped when better.
• This cream is for use on your skin only.
• Do not use on large areas of the body for a long time (such as every day for many weeks or months). If you need treatment for a long time, your doctor may decide you need to use a milder cream or ointment
• The germs that cause infections like warm and moist conditions under dressings so always clean the skin before a fresh dressing is put on.
• If you are applying the cream on someone else make sure you wash your hands after use or wear disposable plastic gloves.
• If your skin problem does not improve in 2 to 4 weeks, talk to your doctor.

Guidance on how to apply the cream
1 Wash your hands.
2 Gently rub the correct amount of cream into the skin until it has all disappeared. You can measure how much Dermovate to use with your fingertip.
3 Unless you are meant to apply the cream to your hands as a part of the treatment, wash them again after using the cream.
For an adult
You should find that:
• two fingertips of cream will cover both hands or one foot
• three fingertips of cream will cover one arm
• six fingertips of cream will cover one leg
• fourteen fingertips of cream will cover the front and back of the body.

Do not worry if you find you need a little more or a little less than this. It is only a rough guide.
