I'm not sure. However, my Ob/GYN did prescribe it to me for that very use. Seems to help. Not sure what it's helping since my doc didn't think that was worth sharing with me even though I have a BS in biochemistry. I'd say if it was prescribed to you, then take it.

Hi Anon,

I'm wondering what you were wanting to use this cream for (as it sounds like it is not appropriate to use on your vagina). What symptoms are you experiencing, as we can help you find a better alternative treatment.

Hope to hear from you soon!

From what I've been reading, no. I believe it's for treating skin conditions like psoriasis.




Clobetasol propionate cream (emollient) should not be used in the treatment of rosacea or perioral dermatitis, and should not be used on the face, groin, or axillae.

Information for Patients: Patients using topical corticosteroids should receive the following information and instructions:

1. This medication is to be used as directed by the physician. It is for external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes.
2. This medication should not be used for any disorder other than that for which it was prescribed.
3. The treated skin area should not be bandaged, otherwise covered, or wrapped so as to be occlusive unless direct- ed by the physician.
4. Patients should report any signs of local adverse reactions to the physician.
5. Patients should inform their physicians that they are using clobetasol propionate if surgery is contemplated.
6. This medication should not be used on the face, underarms or groin areas.
7. As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, contact the physician.
