Eumovate Cream has been designed to prevent inflammation and relieve the discomfort of itchy, red and dry skin, related to the common symptoms of eczema and dermatitis.
Eumovate Cream has been specifically formulated for the short-term treatment of inflamed, red, itchy or dry skin patches that are caused by dermatitis or eczema. It contains the active ingredient clobetasone butyrate 0.05% w/w, a type of medicine known as a topical corticosteroid. This moderately potent steroid can help to control the inflammatory substances which cause eczema and dermatitis. Dermatitis and eczema have comparable manifestations portrayed by a flare-up of the skin, in which it becomes irritated, dry and red. One in twelve adults alone suffers from eczema in the UK but may find that a treatment like Eumovate Cream will calm it down and prevent the need to scratch the skin. In fact Eumovate provides a 24 hour moisturising action to calm a flare-up and help to break the itch-scratch cycle in just three days.
In comparison to Eumovate Ointment, Eumovate Cream is 'cosmetically' more acceptable and easier to rub into skin. It is also easier to spread over a larger surface area; however Eumovate Ointment stays on the skin for longer. At the end of the day the choice between Eumovate Cream or Ointment is simply a personal one.
