Eumovate cream is used to treat various skin conditions, including eczema, dermatitis, prurigo nodularis, nappy rash, reactions to insect bites and stings, and as a maintenance treatment to help prevent eczema flare-ups after they've been controlled with a course of a stronger steroid.

The medication contains the active ingredient clobetasone butyrate 0.05%, which is classified as a moderate-strength corticosteroid used to reduce inflammation in the skin. 

Clobetasone butyrate, the active ingredient in Eumovate cream gel, is a moderately potent anti-inflammatory steroid. When applied to the skin, it works by preventing the release of inflammatory substances inside the skin cells, thereby reducing dryness, redness, and itchiness. 


  • Use it exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. This includes application amount, frequency (usually once or twice daily), and treatment duration (typically not exceeding 4 weeks).
  • Apply a thin layer of the cream to the affected area(s).
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after applying, unless your hands are the area being treated.
  • Avoid getting Eumovate cream in your eyes, mouth, nose, or genitals. Rinse with cool water if accidental contact occurs.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if you have any concerns about using Eumovate on your face, as it's generally not recommended for long-term facial use.
  • Tell your healthcare provider about any existing skin conditions before starting Eumovate.
  • Discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider if the treated area shows signs of infection.


  • Don't use Eumovate on broken or infected skin unless your healthcare provider instructs otherwise.
  • Don't apply Eumovate more often or for longer than prescribed. Overuse can lead to skin thinning and other side effects.
  • Don't cover the treated area with airtight dressings unless specifically directed by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't use Eumovate as a moisturizer. It's meant for treating inflammatory skin conditions.
  • Don't use Eumovate if you're allergic to any of its ingredients.
  • Don't give Eumovate to someone else without consulting a healthcare provider.
  • Don't use Eumovate cream after the expiration date.

Common Side Effects:

  • Burning or stinging sensation on the skin
  • Dryness or cracking of the skin

  • Redness or rash
  • Skin thinning or discoloration
  • Skin irritation

Serious Side Effects:

  • Signs of a serious allergic reaction may include rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.

This is not an exhaustive list, and other side effects may occur. If you experience any unusual or severe side effects while taking Eumovate cream,  contact your healthcare provider for medical advice.

Eumovate cream may cause allergic skin reactions like rashes, redness, itching, or burning. Inform your healthcare provider if you experience any of these.

Avoid using Eumovate cream on the face, groin, or genitals.

Don't apply Eumovate cream to areas with poor blood circulation, such as stasis ulcers.

Prolonged or frequent use of Eumovate cream, a corticosteroid, can cause skin thinning, discoloration, stretch marks, and increased hair growth.

Eumovate cream fabric (clothing, bedding) that has been in contact with the skin may be flammable. Wash clothes and bedding thoroughly to reduce the risk.

Be especially careful when using Eumovate cream on children as they may be more susceptible to side effects.
