Hi doc, just want to ask if its good to continue use of dermovate cream for my face, I have some redness in my face and rashes.

Steroids on face: Usual recommendation is to avoid using steroids on face if possible, if needed used them only for short duration (unto 5 days) and after discussing with doctor as redness on face could be due to allergy, infection etc.

First of all am thanking for your help. My question is I used dermovate cream for several years and I need to quit this cream, and I tried for weeks but my face look worse what can I do please help.

Not for face: Clobetasol should not be used on the face. Sounds like you have a condition caused by steroid on the face. Technical term is "perioral dermatitis" or periorafacial dermatitis". It features red pimples with a narrow clear area around the mouth. Clobetasol makes it temporarily better but it rebounds worse. You will get worse until you stop it, even though it is worse when you first stop. Calcineurin

Second opinion: I routinely recommend discontinuing ineffective treatment. If you are having trouble with discontinuing and have underlying skin issues that could benefit from another cream, then a trusted dermatologist should be able to help. If you need a referral, ask people you know for the name of a dermatologist who will spend the time to discuss and explain their diagnosis/treatment/outcome expected.

Skinoren cream - dermovate cream - dermatix how to use them and what is this creams for these creams were given by my dermatologist but he no explain?

Indication?: Skinoren cream contains azelaic acid 20%; Dermovate: Clobetasol is a topical corticosteroid; Dermatix is a Silicone Gel. I suspect these are for acne treatment, but it behooves you to call your dermatologist and get your answers best from the guy who prescribed the therapy and knows your condition.

I have psoriasis since my teenage I am using clobetasol ointment, dermovate ointment today the pharmacist give me clotrimazole cream usp1%w/w. is that same??

Moisturizer: I am a strong advocate on using non-scented soap and moisturizer after (preferably daily) bathing. Have you tried these? As for the cream, the former two are cortisone the clotrimazole is for fungal infection- they are totally different. See a dermatologist if the above measures did not work for you.

Does Dermovate cream get rid of acne scars?

Does Dermovate cream get rid of acne scars?

No: Honestly, deep acne scars are difficult to treat with our current methods. At best, even with a good laser resurfacing treatment or a chemical peel, 50% improvement would be considered a "good result". But dermovate isn't one of the methods that work.

Medicated cream for black and white head?

Serious Rx: You've already got acne scarring. This would not have happened if you'd gotten cared for by a scientific physician. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease, a major personal and professional liability, that can be managed by 21st century care. With many blackheads, a topical retinoic acid derivative is a good choice; since scarring's present, likely an antibiotic also. Go for it.

Can face creams get bad if they’re too old?

Can face creams get bad if they’re too old?

Expired Face Cream: In general, most products can be used beyond their expiration date. The theoretical risk of old face creams is that they can become contaminated with bacteria from your hands. For optimal hygiene, it is a good idea to wash your hands before applying any multiple use product. In theory, if your hands are dirty, then any bacteria will be transferred to the face cream and from there to your face.
