Eumovate

Eumovate cream is a medicated cream used in the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, nappy rash, and insect bites. This cream contains a medicine called clobetasone butyrate which is a type of steroid. It helps to reduce the irritation and inflammation that is associated with these skin problems. Eumovate cream may be used in mild cases of skin conditions to help keep them under control and prevent them from becoming severe and causing complications. Eczema in particular is a long term condition which may become chronic if not managed. It may cause painful and irritating symptoms such as swelling, redness, itching, and sometimes blistering if it becomes infected. Creams such as Eumovate are needed to control the symptoms.

How does it work?

Eumovate cream is a topical corticosteroid (steroid) which are often used in the treatment of eczema and other skin conditions. Corticosteroids are naturally found in the body and one of their important functions is to control the body’s inflammatory response. Inflammatory chemicals are released when the body is exposed to a trigger or allergen which causes irritation. Corticosteroids such as clobetasone butyrate which is the active ingredient in Eumovate stops skin cells from releasing this inflammatory response to reduce redness, swelling and itching, and eventually clear the skin problem completely. Eumovate cream is a moderate strength corticosteroid and so is usually used on mild to moderate cases of skin problems, for more severe cases you may be prescribed a higher strength corticosteroid.

Who is Eumovate cream suitable for?

Eumovate cream is suitable for adults and children who have been diagnosed with eczema, dermatitis, or any other skin problem which may need corticosteroid treatment. If you have tried other treatments such as emollients which have had no effect, this may make you suitable for a moderate corticosteroid such as Eumovate.

How to use Eumovate cream

Always follow the instructions given by your doctor when using topical corticosteroids. Before applying the cream ensure your hands and the affected area is thoroughly clean and dry, you can then apply the cream. Eumovate is usually applied twice a day depending on the severity of your condition, once your skin condition begins to improve you can reduce the amount and frequency of application. After applying the cream wash your hands thoroughly to avoid transferring it to another area, unless your hands are the affected area. Children will use less cream as steroids can have an effect on their growth.
