More information about Trimovate
Trimovate is a topical medication, available as a cream or ointment, that treats several skin conditions with additional bacterial or fungal infection. It is most commonly prescribed for:*
Currently, HealthExpress only offers a prescription for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis. You should consult your regular doctor if you need treatment for other conditions.
Trimovate is especially effective due to the fact it has three active substances. Its triple-action effect allows it to ease inflammation and fight both fungal and bacterial infections. When used correctly, you will find Trimovate reduces uncomfortable symptoms, like itching and burning sensations, whilst preventing the further spread of infection.
*If you suffer from one of the above conditions but do not have an infection, you should use a different product. Your doctor can recommend one if you are unsure.
Trimovate contains the active ingredients clobetasone butyrate, calcium oxytetracycline and nystatin. Each of these has a unique effect:
An overactive immune system causes both eczema and psoriasis. If you have either of these conditions, your skin becomes inflamed when exposed to irritants and triggers. In the case of psoriasis, the body overproduces skin cells in patches.
On top of this, both conditions can increase the chance of contracting a fungal or bacterial infection. Cracked and damaged skin makes for a perfect entry point for germs.
Trimovate treats both the underlying inflammation as well as the infections that may be making symptoms worse.
You should always follow the advice of your doctor or pharmacist when taking any medication.
Please see a short summary of how to take Trimovate below (full instructions are in the patient leaflet):
Below is a graphic that describes the correct amount of cream to apply to each body part. One unit of cream is from the tip of your index finger to the first joint. If you are still unsure how much to apply, please consult a healthcare professional.
All medications can cause side effects. You should not be concerned if you experience minor reactions, however, you should report them to your doctor. If you experience anything that is distressing, stop treatment and seek immediate medical attention.
As a topical corticosteroid, the most common side effect of Trimovate is skin reactions, including telangiectasia (spider veins).
If steroid creams are used for a prolonged period (longer than recommended) or under airtight clothing, you may experience the following symptoms:
If your condition does not improve after 7 days of use or worsens, you should stop treatment and contact your doctor.
Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. A full list can be found in the patient information leaflet that is included with your order (and is available as a PDF on the right of this page).
Not all skin conditions have the same cause. You should only use Trimovate as instructed by your doctor. Do not use it to treat:
Trimovate will not work against all infections and may even aggravate some.
You should tell your doctor if you are taking any other medications before starting treatment with Trimovate. You should also tell them if you suffer from any other health issues. This is so that they can rule out any possible interactions. For example, certain medicines will make Trimovate less effective (e.g. ritonavir and itraconazole).
If you are pregnant, trying for a child or breastfeeding, you should consult with your doctor before starting this treatment.
Do not go near fire or naked flames when using this product. It is very flammable, and the residue can remain on your clothes.
Certain ingredients in Trimovate (e.g. cetostearyl alcohol) may cause local skin reactions. Make sure to read the patient leaflet before use.
If you are applying cream to your face, be careful not to get it in your eyes. If you do, wash out with water.
Please note - this product can cause a sensitivity to sunlight. Wear sunscreen when outside and avoid sunlamps.
