In brief: No No No No No
Clobetasol is one of the strongest topical cortisones we have.
It will suppress the body's normal inflammatory response to the fungus infection, make the skin look less red, but will also let the fungus grow better, so that when you stop the clobetasol, the fungus will be worse than before.
