Adults and children over 1 year:
• Apply sparingly to cover the affected area, and gently rub into the skin. Frequency of application is 2 to 3 times daily according to the severity of the condition. The total dose applied should not exceed 50 g weekly.
• Treatment should not be continued for more than 7 days without medical supervision. If a longer course is necessary, it is recommended that treatment should not be continued for more than 4 weeks without the patient\\\'s condition being reviewed.

Side Effects
Generally this preparation is well tolerated. However, few side effects after prolonged and intensive treatment may cause local atrophic changes in the skin such as thinning, striae, and dilatation of the superficial blood vessels, particularly when occlusive dressings are used, or when skin folds are involved.
Long-term continuous topical therapy should be avoided where possible, particularly in infants and children, as adrenal suppression can occur readily even without occlusion. If used in childhood, or on the face, courses should be limited to 5 days and occlusion should not be used. If applied to the eyelids, care is needed to ensure that the preparation does not enter the eye. If used in psoriasis careful patient supervision is important.
Scalp Application: Keep away from eye. Flammable. Do not use or dry the hair near a fire or flame.
Scalp Shampoo: Do not use on areas other than the scalp. Keep away from eye.
It is contraindicated in rosacea, acne vulgaris, perioral dermatitis, primary cutaneous viral infections (eg. herpes simplex, chickenpox), otitis externa with a perforated eardrum, hypersensitivity to the preparations. Scalp application is contraindicated in infection of the scalp.
Use in Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy category C: The safe use of this preparation during pregnancy & lactation has not been established.
Drug Interaction
No hazardous interactions have been reported with use of Clobetasol Propionate.
Acute overdosage is very unlikely to occur, however, in the case of chronic overdosage or misuse the features of hypercortisolism may appear and in this situation topical steroids should be discontinued gradually.
