Psoriasis Home > Cormax Side Effects
Clinical studies have shown that the most common side effects of Cormax include burning, stinging, and acne-type bumps. These types of reactions are generally minor and easy to treat. However, there are also some problems that are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider right away, including infections, severe fluid retention, and hallucinations.
An Introduction to Cormax Side EffectsJust like any medicine, Cormax® (clobetasol propionate) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Cormax. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Common Side Effects of CormaxCormax has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received Cormax, while another group was given a placebo (a similar product that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
The most commonly reported side effect of Cormax is burning or stinging, which was reported in up to 10 percent of people (for the scalp solution). Fluid-filled, acne-like bumps were also relatively common, occurring in up to 1 percent of people using the scalp solution. For the ointment, no side effects were commonly reported.
