Temovate Scalp Solution is a medical “shampoo” containing 0.05% clobetasol propionate, a highly potent steroid. We carry the brand choice of this medication!
Temovate Scalp Solution is used to treat certain types of scalp and skin conditions. These types of skin conditions include psoriasis, dermatitis, and rash, which are commonly known conditions of the knees, elbows and arms, but they can also occur on a person’s scalp (head). Many of you have probably heard of dandruff, or may even know someone with it, or maybe you have had it at some point in your life; dandruff is a common sign that the scalp is dry or sheds more than normal. Within conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis, dry skin is a common symptom. Other symptoms of a scalp condition include itchiness, and flaky scaly patches.
Temovate Scalp Solution (clobetasol propionate) is effective at treating skin conditions of the scalp because steroids can block the chemical reactions in the body that create inflammation. They do this by interfering with the DNA inside the cells to create a type of protein, which is what blocks the reaction (inflammation).
