Discussions that mention temovate

Women's Health board


I have had this same problem for almost 8 years. 2 years ago I finally got the nerve to see the dr. about it. She thought the skin "looked strange" and wanted to do a biopsy. This came back normal and she prescribed an ointment to be used everyday for a week. Then just twice a week. I can't remember the name, I'll look when I get home and repost. This ointment has helped but I will still occasionally tear. The dr. said the scar that forms doesn't have the same elasticity as normal skin which makes sense.
I hope this helps and will let you know the name of the ointment.

Ok the brand name of the ointment is Temovate .05% Cream. Generic name is Clobetasol Propionate Cream. Ask your dr. about this.
