Patient Concerns about Ocovate Products

Frequently asked questions about Ocovate Products

Frequently asked questions about Clobetasol

Q. Can Ocovate be used for a long time?
No, Ocovate should not be used for a long time. The doctor generally prescribes it for 2 consecutive weeks only. However, the treatment can be longer for chronic (long-term) inflammatory conditions. Consult your physician before using this medication.
Q. Does Ocovate cause dangerous skin reactions?
Local skin reactions are quite rare with Ocovate. Being an anti-inflammatory drug, it is used to treat skin diseases, skin reactions and eczemas. Still, skin reactions can occur in a person who is hypersensitive to Ocovate. It is important to leave the affected area open after applying Ocovate as using occlusive dressings (air- and water-tight dressing) can lead to skin reactions. If not by the medicine itself, sometimes the reactions are also caused by the added excipients with the medications. Inform your doctor immediately in case you encounter any skin reactions.
Q. Can Ocovate be used on the face?
No, Ocovate should not be used on face. In addition to this, Ocovate should also not be used on the axillae (armpits), groin and if there is atrophy (wasting away of tissues) at the treatment site. In certain circumstances, it can be exceptionally considered to be used by the doctors. It should be used only after consultation with your physician and if possible, the application on face should be limited to a maximum of 5 days.
Q. Can Ocovate be applied in children?
Ocovate is not recommended for use in children less than 1 year of age. It is also not recommended for use in older children and adolescents as the side effects are more common in them. In the pediatric population, there is an increased risk of suppression of the immune system which may make the child prone to other diseases and atrophic changes, hence it is not recommended. Still, in some rare cases, the doctor may recommend this medicine, but the treatment is usually limited to 5 days and the therapy is reviewed weekly.
Q. Can we use Ocovate in infections?
Ocovate is not an antimicrobial or antifungal agent. It is a steroid medication. It should not be used in infections as being a corticosteroid it suppresses the immune system and increases the risk of infections. Bacterial infections are prone to worsen if the infection is covered with a dressing after using Ocovate. In case the inflammatory lesions get infected or there is any spread of infection, consult your doctor immediately. The doctor will withdraw the use of Ocovate and provide appropriate antimicrobial therapy.
Q. Can I stop taking Ocovate when my symptoms are relieved?
No, do not stop taking Ocovate and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before your treatment is complete. Stopping Ocovate before your treatment is completed can bring back your symptoms of skin.
Q. What are the precautions that are needed to be taken while using Ocovate?
Ocovate should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer periods of time than you have been advised. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient, and never give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.
