In brief: Only externally

Clobetasol is a high-potency steroid which is usually meant for external use only.
It is used for many skin conditions which may affect the vulva and cause pain and itching. As most of the nerve endings are just outside the vaginal opening it would not be of much use internally in any case! unless instructed specifically by your doctor, you should only outside the vaginal opening.
