Halobetasol Cream

Psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema are just a few of the skin conditions that can be treated with halobetasol propionate (Ultravate®) cream and ointment. This prescription medicine works to treat these skin problems by reducing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system.
 
The recommended dose of halobetasol cream and ointment is usually to apply a thin layer to the affected areas of the skin once or twice daily. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, side effects are possible and may include skin burning, stinging, or itching.
 
Using this medicine for extended periods (more than two weeks) may cause problems, such as diabetes or Cushing's syndrome. Also, do not cover the medicine with a bandage unless your healthcare provider tells you to do so, as this may increase your risk for side effects.
