A 34-year-old male asked:

What damage can clobetasol propionate do if some traces of it get inside the eyes if not washed? will it make me go blind?

Clobetasol : is a potent steroid and the general rule is IRRIGATE, IRRIGATE, IRRIGATE with saline solution if available and plain water if not..you are not likely to loose eyesight but if eye symptoms (blurriness , pain, etc) persist see an OPTHAMOLOGIST for a complete eye exam! Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
