Ultravate (halobetasol) for Psoriasis: "I have had psoriasis for many years (40) and have seasonably felt the conditions itchiness during the springtime. This year, fed up with the condition, I used Ultravate liberally on all areas where condition exists, but this time, I also exposed the area so UV rays of 9 and above for quite some time, building up to an exposure of one hour in the sunlight. Did not find suntan booths beneficial. Where psoriasis use to be, now it is only an area that you can see, but it no longer itches. I also use coconut oil on the areas to keep the moisture in. After sun exposure, use coconut oil on top of the Ultravate and go in the shade and let the ultravate and coconut oil kind of dry up. It works for me."

For Psoriasis: "I had sores on my palm that just would not heal for several weeks. Finally used Halobetasol Propionate Cream 0.05%. It healed in about a week. I have other less powerful creams and so I only use this cream when nothing else works. Once it works, I switch to less powerful creams for awhile. I then switch to using Dove Sensitive skin and Vanicream. It is really powerful but should be used only when nothing else works."

For Psoriasis: "In just 5 days, it cleared up a bad outbreak on my neck and back, which had been troubling me for quite some time. I used it before on other areas but this one cleared up faster than any of the others. It is the only one that really works."

For Psoriasis: "I use the generic halobetasol along with Dovenex. It works great on the elbows and knees. Sometimes on the hands. Rarely on the feet. I do agree that when you use the HP, it does work rather quickly."

For Psoriasis: "I had stress related psoriasis. I went through a ton of medication's. Finally my dermatologist put me on halobetasol propionate 0.05%, hydroxyzine and an anti-fungal pill; then an antibiotic. I went through a year of fighting this on my hands and feet. I worked a public job where my hands were in contact with people, food and drinks; so you can imagine I had to take an extended vacation. I still have recurring bouts with it and always will. So for some of us, we will just have to live with it and take all this medication I guess. I myself find it hard to believe how people react to you when you have this problem."

Ultravate (halobetasol) for Dermatitis: "i have this condition on my hands (palms) and feet (heels). I use halobetasol one day then use Dovonex then next. Halobetasol 3 days and Dovonex 4 days of the week. Using these are the only things ever prescribed that has given my any relief!! It does not go away but slows the blisters and cracking."

For Eczema: "I have had eczema all my life on my ankles and now it's moved to my hands. This is the only thing I can use to be able to function daily. My hands bust open and I put this on at night and wear a pair of white cotton gloves to bed."

Ultravate (halobetasol) for Eczema: "This ointment was the only thing that worked for my eczema. I had it on my leg for years and it was open and raw; the itch unbearable. I tried everything and this was the only thing that made it go away. 10 years later and it has not come back."
