“I had been experiencing an intense vulva itch for 4 years. I tried everything under the sun, with no relief! My skin had become inflamed, swollen and broken. I had become so depressed over this condition as I couldn’t find relief. I was miserable! Finally, I was given this lotion, and upon 1-2 applications, my condition improved to nearly 100%. It’s been a month since I was introduced to it... and I have not scratched once! Miracle drug, no doubt!”
“I first used Temovate but then as prescribed the clobetasol .01 cream (The .05 lotion didn’t help much.) My husband I are gardeners and hunters and have found this works! I know there are restrictions which we follow. We have used periodically for years.”
“Got this prescribed for eczematous dermatitis and after an hour of application I started feeling very dizzy, drunk-like dizziness, room was spinning. I felt like that the whole night. In the morning I applied again and felt a little better but still lightheaded. Felt heartbeat increase and took my blood pressure and it was pretty high and I'm a 31 year old healthy slim woman. I started looking for side effects and found that the drug can cause new or worsening blood pressure, also dizziness and fainting. Stopped using it after 3 days and feel a lot better. For those 3 days, my skin did not improve a lot.”

“Best medication, for dyshidrotic eczema, I have found after many years of suffering. It clears up the water bubbles I have that pop on my skin and soothes the cracked peeling skin that result from the bubbles.”
“I have excema that will randomly occur only on my palm, fingers or toes. I fought with it for years and never found any relief until I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed Clobetasol Propionate. I apply a thin layer at bedtime during outbreaks and my symptoms are gone overnight if I apply the medicine in time. If not then it takes a couple of days but this is the only medication I've found that relieves my symptoms!”
Clobex (clobetasol): “After just 3 days of using this I'm starting to see significant clearing on the inside of my elbow where a stress rash got out of control. I might not need to even use it for the whole 2 weeks and be able to save it for next time!”
“I had contact dermatitis from a makeup product that caused me to break out in dry flakey red rash spots all over my face. I was prescribed Clobetasol... I put it on this evening and after about 6 hours wearing this cream on my face about 85% of the redness is gone, the texture of my skin went from irritated, tight, dry and flaking to smooth and calm and even toned! This stuff is a miracle!”

Temovate (clobetasol): “I have used both Temovate and the generic Clobetasol for the treatment of poison ivy. Both were equally effective. Over the counter meds-ointments such as caladryl and cortisone did nothing to relieve the itching and misery, however, as soon as applying temovate or clobetasol to the affected areas, the itching was relieved and greatly reduced almost immediately. Within a day, the blisters were dried up and within 2 days everything cleared up. This is experience with these topical steroids over the past 30 years. Nothing else has ever worked, and I tried everything including over the counter ointments, lotions and Aveeno baths.”
Clobex (clobetasol): “Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis: I was prescribed Clobex lotion for my condition that arises occasionally and causes itching and burning, mostly on my arms. Whenever I get a flareup, I apply Clobex and get immediate relief.”
“I have localized scleroderma -Morphea. I have patches all over my back, very painful swollen, itchy, looks red-purplelish, cant stand anything touching my skin. My doctor prescribed clobetasol 2x day. He said that the patches in my back were so swollen that I would not notice any changes for at least a month. Well I've only used Clobetasol for 2 weeks and I can see a big diference, my skin doesn't hurt, itch, its not swollen, it does not look irritated, it even looks healthy!”
“summer of 2016, i got burnt to a crisp. decided not to wear sunscreen. Dumb idea. after the burning, and peeling of my skin came the "hell's itch". i wanted to RIP MY SKIN OFF. people USE SUNSCREEN. if you decide not to wear sunscreen, be prepared. if you want a quick solution when the itch arrives, CALL A DERMATOLOGIST OFFICE. make sure they accept your insurance, and BEG to be seen. I was prescribed clobetasol propionate solution, told to use Sarna Anti itch lotion in between clobetasol usage, also take an over the counter pill of zyrtec once a day, and was also prescribed hydroxyzine to help me sleep. And to wear COTTON clothes all the time. took all that medicine due to the complexion of my skin. BEST DECISION EVER.”
Olux (clobetasol): “Olux is a mousse that is massaged into the psoriasis on the scalp. After using this 2x per day for approximately 3 wks I no longer am using T-Gel 3x a week. I'm back to using my old shampoo. No itching or flaking of the scalp. It's so easy to use, too.”
“Clobetasol Propionate topical solution USP, 0.05% manufactured by TARO. I have occasional dermatitis of the scalp, this clears it right up with only an application or two. An average of maybe 3 applications per month.”
“My doctor prescribed Temovate (Clobetasol-.5%) for rash and itch caused from poison ivy exposure. I got very quick results. The morning after applying this cream the symptoms began to decrease. In a day or two it was completely gone.”
Olux (clobetasol): “I've always had dermatitis on my scalp and face, but the rashes on my body started out as allergic dermatitis after it reacted to an antibiotic called Vancomycin. But then even after all my antibiotics, the rashes kept getting worse and worse. I got a biopsy done, and the results were that I had psoriasis form of dermatitis, which is similar to psoriasis. At first the dermatologist prescribed Clobex, but it only worked on my arms. I still use the Clobex shampoo for my scalp. After that, the dermatologist told me to try Olux. I've been using Olux for a couple of weeks now, and my body is clearing up, especially my back and thighs.”
“It help me a lot with my rash, scalp and hair loss.”
“This medication clears up the little watery blisters (caused by Dyshidrotic eczema) in one (or maybe two nights flat.”
“Works well if you are PreMenopausal, Menopausal or PostMenopausal and has experienced itch around vagina due to dryness, hot flashes and night sweats. Highly recommended.”
“Incredible medication. I have no negative comments. I recommend this cream.”
“Used for poison ivy / oak/ sumac that I had going on 10 days. Immediate relief for itching, but only use as directed as this is all you need.”
“Was given to me for what Dr said was poison oak rash. Has not helped”
