    Description

    HALOVATE contains Halobetasol propionate which belongs to the group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. It is indicated for the topical treatment of a variety of skin conditions such as skin rash, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Halobetasol is a super-high potency corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory and antipruritic properties. It can effectively reduce swelling, itching and redness associated with allergic skin conditions.

    This medicine is for external use only. Avoid contact of this medicine with your eyes, ears, nose or mouth. If contact happens, rinse it thoroughly with plenty of water. Do not cover the treated area unless directed by physician. HALOVATE should not be used on the face, groin, or in the axillae. This medicine should not be used for more than 2 weeks at a time due to the risk of hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis suppression. If you cannot see any improvement within 2 weeks of therapy, inform your doctor. Your doctor might suggest an alternative therapy.

    The most common side effects of this medicine are burning sensation, itching or redness at application site. These symptoms are usually temporary and disappears within a few days of treatment.  Before applying this medicine, inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not apply this medicine if you have certain other type of skin disorders such as rosacea or perioral dermatitis. HALOVATE is strictly not recommended for use in children below 12 years of age. Consult your doctor for advice before taking.

    USES OF HALOVATE

    • Treats skin rash, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis

    HOW HALOVATE WORKS

    Halobetasol has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties. It works by inducing the production of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which are responsible for the biosynthesis of the common precursor arachidonic acid and its potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. This leads to a reduction in inflammation, itching, and redness associated with skin rash, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

    DIRECTIONS FOR USE

    Apply a thin layer of this medicine to the affected skin once or twice daily, as directed by your physician. It is for external use only. Avoid contact of this medicine with your eyes, ears, nose or mouth. If contact happens, rinse it thoroughly with plenty of water. Do not cover the treated area unless directed by physician. Do not apply this medicine on the face, groin, or in the axillae. This medicine should not be used for more than 2 weeks at a time, as it may result in the risk of HPA axis suppression. If you cannot see any improvement within 2 weeks of therapy, inform your doctor.
