RELATED: Topical Steroid Potencies

Clobetasol Propionate Cream 0.05% is a super high potency corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in adults. The mechanism of action is unclear, but corticosteroids are thought to act by induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, called lipocortins. These proteins are thought to control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting arachidonic acid.
