Safely Buy Eumovate Ointment ( Cobetasol 17 butyrate ) from Canada Prescriptions Plus.


Eumovate ointment is a topical medication that contains the active ingredient clobetasone butyrate, which is a moderately potent corticosteroid.

Eumovate ointment is used to treat various inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis.

Use and Dosage

According to the information provided by the NHS, most people only need to use clobetasone (the active ingredient in Eumovate) 1 or 2 times a day for a week. However, if your doctor has prescribed it, they may suggest that you use it for longer than a week. If you use clobetasone 2 times a day, leave a gap of 8 to 12 hours between each use.

The amount of cream or ointment you need to use can be measured in fingertip units. A fingertip unit of cream should be enough to treat an area of skin that is double the size of the palm of your hand.

Follow the instructions provided by your pharmacist or doctor, or the leaflet in the medicine packet, for the correct dosage and duration of treatment.

Side Effects

Some individuals may experience skin irritation, such as redness, itching, or burning at the site of application.

Prolonged use of topical corticosteroids like Eumovate Ointment can lead to thinning of the skin, making it more susceptible to injury.

In rare cases, Eumovate Ointment may cause changes in skin pigmentation, resulting in lighter or darker patches of skin.

Although rare, some individuals may develop an allergic reaction to Eumovate Ointment. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or difficulty breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

Discontinuing the use of Eumovate Ointment abruptly after prolonged use may lead to a rebound effect, where the original skin condition worsens or returns.
