Clobetasol - Dosage and How to Use

How should Clobetasol be used?

  • ​Apply this shampoo on the affected areas of the scalp once a day.
  • Do not wet your hair before using this shampoo. Move the hair away from the affected area on the scalp, apply a small amount of the shampoo and gently rub it into the affected area directly. Repeat for the other affected areas on your scalp.
  • Do not cover your head with a shower cap or bathing cap while the shampoo is on your scalp, unless instructed by your doctor.
  • Leave the shampoo on your scalp for 15 minutes, then wet your hair with water and wash. Rinse well.
  • You do not have to use other shampoos. However, you can choose to use a non-medicated shampoo on your hair after using this shampoo if you want to.
  • Wash your hands after applying this shampoo. Wash any other part of your body that may have come into contact with this shampoo, such as your neck and shoulders.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

  • If you miss a dose or forget to apply your medication, apply it as soon as you can.
  • However, if it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then to apply the medication and skip the missed dose.
  • Do not double your dose or use extra medication to make up for a missed dose. If you have missed many doses, please contact your doctor or pharmacist to check what you should do.
