Clobetasol is used to manage symptoms related to a variety of skin conditions, including eczema. Clobetasol propionate is a medication that belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids. As a steroid, clobetasol has a slight degree of mineralocorticoid activity and a high degree of glucocorticoid activity and is similar to betamethasone, desonide, prednisone, and triamcinolone. The exact mechanism of how clobetasol works in dermatoses is, at this time, not fully understood. In general, clobetasol should not be used on the face, groin, or axillae or when atrophy of the skin is present.
