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. ...Read more

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?
The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as I can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure.
Take care. ...Read more
