Aclovate Ointment Description

Aclovate Ointment or Alclometasone Dipropionate generic is a medium strength topical steroid medication that your doctor or dermatologist can prescribe to treat a variety of skin conditions including eczema, plaque psoriasis, and other inflammatory dermatoses and skin allergies.

You will need a prescription to purchase Aclovate Ointment or its generic alternative Alclometasone Dipropionate. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Aclovate Ointment Reduces Inflammation

When applied as directed, Aclovate Ointment is absorbed into your skin cells where it will work to inhibit the production of various inflammation-causing chemicals that are normally released when the skin reacts to allergens or irritation as an immune response. These inflammatory chemicals include prostaglandins and a host of other various substances that will start the healing process. However, inflammation causes more inflammation so Alclometasone Propionate works by limiting inflammatory chemicals to allow you some relief from the itching, redness, and pain symptoms you experience.

Conditions Treated by Aclovate Ointment

Eczema is the most common of these skin conditions and is more prevalent in children than adults. Eczema is commonly found in families with a history of other allergies or asthma and may be associated with the inheritance of a faulty gene in the skin called filaggrin.

Aclovate Ointment may also be prescribed to treat allergic contact dermatitis which occurs when the skin comes in contact with an allergen. Although there is no cure for this condition, most people can effectively manage it by identifying and avoiding allergens whenever possible and using topical preparations such as Aclovate Ointment when necessary.
