How it works
The main active ingredient in Topinate 0.05 cream is Clobetasol (Corticosteroid). It has specific anti-inflammatory effects on the skin.
The skin gets inflamed as a result of allergic reactions or irritation and releases a variety of substances. Blood vessels enlarge as a result, and the irritated skin becomes red, puffy, itchy, and unpleasant.
Clobetasol Propionate, a corticosteroid (steroid) present in Topinate 0.05 skin cream, aids in reducing skin inflammation.
By preventing the body from producing specific chemical messengers that promote inflammation, it lessens swelling, redness, and itching. Clobetasol cream should only be applied externally and according to your doctor's instructions.
