Cormax review

Cormax is used for the treatment of various skin disorders such as eczema. It is available in ointment and an emollient cream.

Cormax, which has a generic name of clobetasol propionate, is recommended for use among adults and children. Cormax is an anti-inflammatory and antipruritic. It is recommended for patients suffering from various skin disorders like eczema, rashes, allergies, and dermatitis. The medicament reduces the swelling, redness, and pruritus that comes with these skin disorders.

Cormax is applied to the skin twice a day. However, a physician can increase the dosage according to the severity of the condition. The medicament should be used only to the skin and should never be applied to the face, underarms, or groin unless instructed by your physician.

Patients should first wash and dry their hands before applying Cormax. The affected area should be cleaned and dried prior to the application of the medicament as well. The area should not be covered or bandage unless instructed to do so by your physician.

After applying Cormax, patients should again wash their hands. In case the medicament accidentally comes in contact with the eyes, mouth, or nose, immediately rinse the area with lots of water.

Cormax should not be used for longer than 2 weeks and the dosage should be kept under 50 grams a week. In case the conditions continue, patients should consult their physician for further direction.

Cormax can result in some side effects. Patients should inform their doctor in the event that they experience any of these. Some of the side effects that may result from use of Cormax include a burning, pruritus, or stinging sensation at the area being treated. Usually these conditions should improve after a few days once the body becomes used to the medicament. However when the conditions persist, patients should talk to a doctor as soon as possible. Most of the time, patients using Cormax do not experience these side effects, so the chances of a person experiencing these conditions are quite low.

Some of the more serious side effects include discoloration of the skin, acne, stretch marks, unwanted growing of hair, and folliculitis or hair growth.

It is also very rare that a person develops allergy to this medicament. However patients are advised to get immediate medical help in case they notice symptoms of allergic reaction such as rashes, swelling, pruritus, severe dizziness, and difficulties in breathing.

Before agreeing to use Cormax, patients should tell their doctors any history of allergy to corticosteroids like prednisone or if they are allergic to any medicament. Patients should also inform their doctor of their medical history particularly if they have problems in blood circulation and immune system, as well as skin disorders like rosacea.

Clobestasol should not be used on a sore or infected area.

There is also a possibility-albeit very low-that Clobestasol can enter the bloodstream. It can lead to undesirable results requiring corticosteroid treatment. This may happen to children or those who use the medicament for an extended period of time. Some of the symptoms that may arise as a result include vision problems, unexplained weight loss, and persistent cephalalgia.
