After eczema is controlled with strong steroids, Eumovate can be used as a maintenance treatment to prevent flare-ups.
The active ingredient in Eumovate ointment is Clobetasone Butyrate 0.05%. This mild topical corticosteroid helps to reduce skin inflammation.
Skin inflammation is usually caused by irritation or allergic reactions on the skin. It causes the blood vessels to widen and cause the irritated skin area to become swollen, red, itchy, and painful.
Clobetasone works inside the skin cells to stop the release of inflammatory substances. It reduces the redness, swelling, and itching and prevents further irritation by scratching.
The Eumovate Ointment has more grease than creams which makes it better for very dry or scaly areas.
Eumovate Ointments should not get into your eyes, nose or mouth. If the ointment comes into contact with these areas accidentally, rinse immediately with cold water.
It is recommended that you wash your hands well after the application of the Eumovate on an affected area unless it is your hands that are being treated.
Do not cover the affected area with clothing or tight dressings unless your doctor directs you to cover these areas as it increases the absorption of the medication into the body, which increases the risk of side effects.
If your doctor instructs you to cover the affected area after applying Eumovate, then clean the affected area of the skin before using the ointment. Use fresh dressing/clothing every time. For children, waterproof pants and nappies can be airtight dressing and increase the absorption of the medicine.
Apply Eumovate Ointment and gently rub it into the affected skin areas. Adults should not consume more than 100-g per week.
Eumovate can cause skin thinning, hair growth, and stretch marks if used for an excessive time or on the parts where the skin is more delicate, like on the skin of the face, eyelids, lips or scalp. These side effects are rare for the rest of the skin on your body. Eumovate creams are not recommended for ailments like alopecia. For complete information read the leaflet that comes with the product.
The side effects of Eumovate Ointment are mostly tolerable when it is applied sparingly, not more than twice daily.
Eumovate should be stopped immediately on noticing a severe allergic reaction.
Side effects are more likely to occur when Eumovate is used for too long or on thin skin. These side effects can include hair loss, thinning skin and stretch marks. However, they are rare. When used at the prescribed dosage and for the correct time, most people find that Eumovate Ointment causes no side effects.
If you're currently taking any corticosteroid medications, tell your doctor before beginning the usage of Eumovate. It is best to wait several minutes between applying Eumovate and other products for better results. It will allow the one product to absorb first and prevent the two products from merging.
Eumovate Ointment should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding unless recommended by your doctor. Eumovate is safe to be applied to the breasts after you breastfeed and not near the time of breastfeeding.
