Calcipotriol + Clobetasol is a combination of two medicines: Calcipotriol + Clobetasol1 and Calcipotriol + Clobetasol2 which treat psoriasis. Calcipotriol + Clobetasol1 is a form of vitamin D. It works by reducing the overproduction of skin cells that may build up and form scales on the skin. Calcipotriol + Clobetasol2 is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.
