What is Temovate Scalp Solution?

Temovate Scalp Solution is a prescription topical medication that may be prescribed to people with scalp psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis (also known as eczema), and other dermatoses of the scalp. It contains a strong corticosteroid, which is a type of medication used to relieve inflammation.

More specifically, when you apply Temovate Scalp Solution to your scalp, the corticosteroid reduces the activity of your immune system to inhibit the substances that cause inflammation. These substances include white blood cells that circulate in the bloodstream and are signaled as an immune response to injuries. When white blood cells and other chemicals rush to the affected area as protection, they can lead to painful inflammation and irritation. Temovate Scalp Solution decreases the production of the inflammatory chemicals, which offers relief from the pain and tenderness of red, itchy dermatoses on the scalp.

Due to the potency of Temovate Scalp Solution, your doctor may recommend you apply this medication for short periods of time or only when your psoriasis or eczema flares up. The generic alternative, Clobetasol Propionate, is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions treated by Temovate Scalp Solution

For severe scalp eczema, psoriasis, and other scalp conditions, Temovate Scalp Solution and Temovate generic can help control inflammation for short periods of time.

Psoriasis is a common autoimmune condition that has no cure. It speeds up the life cycle of skin cells, meaning skin cells pile up on the surface and raised patches form because the body cannot shed the old cells quick enough. A flare up can be triggered by certain drugs, stress, infections, or cold weather. There are several types of psoriasis, including the most common, plaque psoriasis.

Eczema is another skin condition that causes red, itchy, inflamed skin. It also has no cure. Eczema is most prevalent on the cheeks and chin in babies and children, but it can appear anywhere. It can be triggered by allergens, stress, and other irritants. While eczema is most common in children, adults can develop it as well (even if they never had it as a child). There are several types of eczema, including the most common, atopic dermatitis.
