Description

How Does Eumovate Cream Work?

Skin becomes inflamed when the body releases inflammatory chemicals in response to an allergen or irritation. These chemicals make blood vessels widen, causing the skin or scalp to swell. Eumovate cream contains the active ingredient clobetasone butyrate. The substance is an anti-inflammatory drug that reduces swelling on the skin. It works by inhibiting the chemicals that cause bulging. This reduces inflammation and eczema symptoms. Eumovate is also available as a lotion and ointment.
