Drug Description


Aclovate Ointment is prescribed to alleviate the inflammatory and itching symptoms associated with corticosteroid-responsive skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rashes. 

As a topical steroid, Aclovate Ointment works by mitigating the effects of biochemical agents within the body that instigate inflammatory responses. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Aclovate Ointment and with every prescription refill, thoroughly review the accompanying medication guide and patient information leaflet. If you have any queries or concerns, seek advice from your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

Aclovate Ointment is intended for topical application to the skin. Nonetheless, refrain from applying it to the face, groin, underarms, or for diaper rash unless specifically instructed by your doctor. 

Typically, this ointment is applied to the affected skin area 2 to 3 times daily. 

For proper application of Aclovate Ointment, adhere to these steps: 

  1. Wash and dry your hands before applying the ointment. 
  2. Clean and thoroughly dry the affected area. 
  3. Apply a thin layer of the ointment to the affected area, gently massaging it in as per your doctor’s instructions. 
    • Unless instructed by your doctor, refrain from bandaging, covering, or wrapping the treated area. 
  4. After application, wash your hands immediately unless you are treating an area on the hands. 

When using Aclovate Ointment near the eyes, take care to prevent any contact with the eyes, as it can potentially exacerbate or induce glaucoma. 

Similarly, avoid application of this ointment near the eyes, nose, or mouth. In case of accidental contact in these regions, promptly rinse with ample amounts of water. 

Do not apply Aclovate Ointment on damaged or infected skin, and refrain from using it on open wounds. 

Contact your doctor if your symptoms persist or worsen after two weeks of Aclovate treatment.
