Halobetasol Propionate Cream

A healthcare provider may prescribe halobetasol propionate (Ultravate®) cream or ointment to treat certain skin conditions that cause itching and inflammation. This medicine is specifically designed to treat skin problems like psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis, among others.
 
The recommended halobetasol dosage will depend on the severity of the skin condition being treated. However, the guidelines usually call for a thin layer of the medicine to be applied to the affected areas of the skin once or twice daily. Possible side effects may include skin irritation, such as burning, stinging, and itching.
 
It is generally not recommended to use this medicine for longer than two weeks, as it may lead to serious complications. For instance, using too much halobetasol for extended periods may lead to Cushing's syndrome or diabetes.
