Skin inflammation happens when an allergic reaction or irritation of the skin causes various substances to be released in the skin that make blood vessels widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy, and painful.
Clobetasol acts inside the skin cells to stop the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces the swelling, redness, and itching and so helps prevent scratching that can further irritate the skin.
Dermovate Cream is more suitable for moist, weeping areas of skin, while the thicker, more greasy ointment is more suitable for dry, scaly areas of skin.
