My Doctor gave me Clobetasol for Alopecia Areata and not only did it not really help but it gave me a terrible itchy scalp condition. I swear my scalp is like flaking off, it is so bad. Of course i discontinued use and my scalp is improving.

I have nerve damage on half of my forehead from an accident in 1965. I have suffered all these years with persistent itching of the area, even tho the area is mostly numb. The condition worsens when I get in the sun or overheated. It was itching to the point I feared making it raw after a day out in the sun. One application and I had immediate relief!

After several attempts to resolve the pain and itch from extensive poison ivy this was the only RX that gave me relief. This is my 2nd day of using this product and I am already seeing some improvement. Although this is rated as a very potent corticosteroid I will ask for it again if I have this misfortune of contracting poison ivy in the future.

I got about 40 flea bites at a friend's guest house, and nothing helped with the really bad itching until my dermatologist prescribed this. It cured the problem in less than 2 days.
