“I am on the third day using halobeta for Lichen Planus and already notice improvement, I’ve had lichen planus for 10 years and nothing worked that fast! I will keep updating my review as time goes on.”

My 8 yr old daughter · Taken for less than 1 month September 30, 2017

For Psoriasis: “Alley is on her 4th treatment of different ointment/creams. She was just prescribed this one. Dr said to only use in emergencies for itch and pain. Otherwise she needs to continue with the rx vitaman e ointment. She is doing better but I think the natural sun and our salt water pool helped a lot this summer. Does anyone have any suggestions on what would work on an 8yr old without all the possible long term side affects? I'm told no oral meds due to age. Thank you Sandra”

For Eczema: “During my divorce, the skin on both feet literally peeled off. I would have to soak both feet so the dried blood would release my socks! Finally, a dermatologist took one look, asked if I was in stress, and told me I had eczema! He gave me a prescription for temovate , which later named ultravate. In less than 48 hrs, I had new skin on both feet! It literally saved my life!”

For Psoriasis: “I have been using Halobetasol Propionate for last 4+ years and when I use this my scar and itching goes away 15-30 days but again this resurface. Looking for some natural remedy and want to avoid these ointment/cream as long-term this is not good for health. The good part is I get this from my country as here we need a prescription and spend tons of money.”

For Psoriasis: “I have used Halobetasol Propionate 0.05% for over 20 yrs for moderate plaque psoriasis on a daily routine. The only draw back I have noticed is the area treated is thin skinned. Also if I run out and do not use for more than a few days, my psoriasis becomes "angry". The itching becomes unbearable and the inflammation is awful as is the redness, plus it spreads and becomes bigger. There is pain where the plaques are. I have tried a lot of the OTC medicine and none help me. Just a lot of money spent.”

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.”

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.”
