Temovate is a topical corticosteroid that contains clobetasol propionate as its active ingredient. Clobetasol propionate is synthetic in nature.
Temovate is used to reduce the effects associated with multiple skin conditions. The synthetic corticosteroids in Temovate help to diminish the immune response elicited due to various dermatological issues.
When certain irritants or allergens enter the body, there is a particular immune response launched. There are some chemicals such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes released by the body that result in inflammation and itchiness. In addition to causing blood vessels to dilate, they also signal other inflammatory substances to accumulate at the site of the irritant or allergen. When the topical corticosteroid is applied to the skin, it is absorbed by the cells. The corticosteroids then prevent the chemicals from being released. The immune system is repressed and the blood vessels contract, becoming smaller. This reduces the swelling, redness, and irritation associated with the prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
