Olux-E Foam is a topical highly potent steroid containing clobetasol propionate. We carry the brand choice of this medication in 0.05%.
Olux-E Foam is used on the skin to treat inflammation and itchiness caused by plaque psoriasis or other skin conditions that can be treated with steroid medications. Plaque psoriasis is a long-term skin disease where the skin cells grow much faster than usual, which causes a buildup of cells on the skin resulting in red, raised patches with silver-colored scales on your skin. Other conditions include skin problems associated with psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash.
Olux-E Foam (clobetasol propionate) is effective in treating these dermatological (skin) conditions because of its power to reduce inflammation in the body. It also contains emollients, which soften and moisturize the skin which helps with itching, flaking and protection against irritation.
