Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Clobetasol propionate is a mild steroid used to suppress inflammation and salicylic acid is a desquamating agent used to remove dead skin with a mild antiseptic property.
  • If you have been prescribed this ointment by a dermatologist, you can go ahead with it otherwise do not use it.
  • If you have any irritation, burning sensation or flare up of infection, discontinue its use and consult your dermatologist immediately.
