EUMOSONE contains Clobetasone butyrate which belongs to a group of medicines called steroids which helps to reduce swelling and irritation. It helps to reduce the redness and itchiness of skin problems such as eczema, dermatitis, nappy rash or insect bites and also reduces inflammation of the outer ear.
Clobetasone butyrate is a topical corticosteroid which is used to control inflammation on the skin. It works to stop the skin's over-reaction to the triggers that cause skin flare ups and suppresses the inflammation that causes eczema or dermatitis. It inhibits the migration of macrophages and leukocytes into areas of inflamed skin by reversing vascular dilation and permeability, resulting in decreased erythema, edema and pruritus.
Before using EUMOSONE inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems, are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not recommended for use in children and adolescents below 12 years of age. The common side effects are burning, irritation, itching and redness. Avoid accidental transfer of medicine into eyes, mouth, or other mucous membranes. If contact with mucous membranes occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid covering the treated area with airtight dressings such as bandages unless advised by a doctor.
