I am unsure if I have herpes as I haven’t been tested yet but I received clobetasol propionate for scalp treatment. Is it safe to use it anyways?
No it is not the medication you need do not use it for herpes, it belongs to the drug class of corticosteroids.
You need to be tested once you have had an outbreak and need an antiviral medication, Valacyclovir is the choice of drug to treat herpes, but it has to be prescribed by a Dr..
Take care, masso
