Can I use Clobetasol ointment on my face? I've been told I have eczema or chronic spontaneous urticaria. No allergies, just happens for no reason

Can I use Clobetasol ointment on my face? I've been told I have eczema or chronic spontaneous urticaria. No allergies, just happens for no reason

NO NO NO: See a dermatologist. Eczema and urticaria are completely different. You left out any clues to the true diagnosis. Neither eczema nor chronic urticaria are allergies. The treatments are completely different. Do not use clobetasol on your face. It may cause perioral dermatitis. You will be sorry if it does. It is rarely associated with cataracts and glaucoma if used on the face. ...Read more

I have the following medicines:triamcinolone 0.1 % cream, clobetasol 0.05 % ointment, and tacrolimus 0.1 % ointment. Which can I apply to my nipples?

Depends: If the problem is an itchy rash, then a low-potency cortisone such as Hydrocortisone may be helpful. Triamciolone may also be tried as long as you don't use it for more than a week. Clobetasol is likely too strong.
Tacrolimus can be used as maintenance — more to prevent recurrence than as a treatment. Consider seeing a dermatologist to find out what may be causing the problem. ...Read more

Will clobetasol propionate help with male jock itch?

Will clobetasol propionate help with male jock itch?

Not a good treatment: "Jock itch" is not a diagnosis. There are dozens of possible causes for genital itch. Begin with a specific definition of the cause. Successful treatment flows from that. Clobetasol, as a super-potent steroid, is prone to cause ugly, annoying purple streaks and thin, wrinkled skin when used on the genital skin. Avoid use in this area for more than a few days. ...Read more
