What is Eumovate Cream?

Eumovate eczema and dermatitis creams contain a medicine called clobetasone butyrate. It belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. 

Eumovate is used for the short term treatment and control of patches of red, itchy skin caused by eczema and dermatitis. The cream works to shop the skin's over-reaction to the triggers that cause skin flare-ups such as eczema or dermatitis. The active ingredient is clobetasone butyrate which is a topical corticosteroid to control inflammation of the skin. The cream base also has moisturising properties. 

How does Eumovate Cream work?

Eumovate cream contains the active ingredient clobetasone butrate 0.05% w/w, a topical corticosteroid to reduce inflammation of the skin.

When exposed to an allergen the body’s immune system can launch an attack on the area of the skin, this results in inflammation, redness, and itchiness. Corticosteroids, like clobetasone, absorb into the skin cells in the area and stop the inflammatory reaction that caused the immune system to attack. This results in breaking the itch-scratch cycle, reduction in swelling and redness of the skin.

How Effective is Eumovate cream?

It is very effective against mild to moderate skin inflammation. Used on an area twice a day inflammation should go away within 7 days. If the inflammation remains or has not reduced at all, you may require a stronger corticosteroid to calm the inflamed skin.


Other stronger prescription creams and ointments for eczema and skin inflammation are available at Simple Online Pharmacy. These are only suitable for those who have been currently prescribed topical steroids before by their GP. These include:

Eumovate is classified as a moderately potent steroid.
