Aclovate ointment is a topical medication that contains the active ingredient alclometasone dipropionate, which is a corticosteroid.

Alclometasone is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash.

Alclometasone dipropionate helps reduce swelling, itching, redness, and inflammation associated with these skin conditions.

Use and Dosage

Use this medication on the skin only. However, do not use it on the face, groin, or underarms, or for diaper rash, unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Wash and dry your hands before using. Clean and dry the affected area. Apply a thin film of medication to the affected area and gently rub in as directed by your doctor, usually 2 to 3 times daily. Do not bandage, cover, or wrap the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.

After applying the medication, wash your hands, unless you are using this medication to treat the hands. When applying this medication near the eyes, avoid getting it in the eyes because this may worsen or cause glaucoma. Also, avoid getting this medication in the eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get the medication in these areas, rinse with plenty of water.

Use this medication only for the condition for which it was prescribed. Do not use it on a child for longer than 3 weeks in a row unless directed to do so by the doctor.

Inform your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse after 2 weeks.
