Tinea Incognito: If you actually have Jock itch, you issue is fungal and Clobetasol, a high potency steroid could make your fungal infection worse, causing Tinea Incognito. Also it should not be used in a occlusive area like your groin. It may be time for you to follow up with a doctor. If you cannot do so immediately, try washing area with Nizoral (ketoconazole) Dandruff shampoo, dry thoroughly and keep area dry with powder.

Can clobetasol propionate cream be used to treat acne?

Can clobetasol propionate cream be used to treat acne?

Terrible choice: This is a glucocorticoid. It will suppress inflammation just enough to allow the bacteria to overgrow and come back with a vengeance. This class of medications actually causes acne as a side-effect. Please. You're a responsible adult. If you're going to use a medication that should be used only on a physician's orders, get with a competent physician for acne treatment.

I am using dermovat cream clobetasol propionate for a small part of my chest skin where I am treating a keloid for 2 months, any steroid side effects?

I am using dermovat cream clobetasol propionate for a small part of my chest skin where I am treating a keloid for 2 months, any steroid side effects?

Caution!: That is a very potent steroid cream, usually not prescribed for continuous use. It can cause your skin to thin, blood vessels to change, loss of normal elasticity, worsening of skin infections, and rarely can cause systemic symptoms. This is less likely with use on just a "small" part of skin, but small is a relative term! It usually does not shrink keloids. Better would be steroid injected directly.
