Clobetasol steroid potency

It does. And thank you...again!   I am thinking of starting a new discussion, but am not sure if I should.  Remember I said I had bought dermasilk underwear and it was very expensive, esp for the . because of added shipping...I feel maybe I should tell everyone that it turns out, this underwear really helps with the burning and itching symptoms.  When I start to feel that feeling...I put them on and  right away there is comfort.  I don't sell them or have any other reason to promote them except getting a soothing feeling when I sure need it.  I have to leave for a while, heading off too the Kingdom Hall for worship, but I will check here later.  Thanks again for advise on being less confused on this site!!

DR.
Recently you suggested that a patient sufferring from scalp itch caused by minoxidil should be cautious about using topical steroids to relieve the itching sensation. I have been prescribed the topical steroid clobetesol to relieve itching I have suffered from the same symptoms, what are the potetial negative side effects that I should be concerned about? Thanks. Chronic use of steroids can cause hair loss and if the steroids are in high enough quantity and taken long enough, it can, of course, impact the adrenal glands. This is why potent corticosteroids like clobetasol should not be used for extended periods of time (no longer than 2 weeks is recommended in most cases).
