prednicarbate  [  (Drugs.com) ]
Clinical Use: Prednicarbate is a topical corticosteroid drug [1]. It is used to relieve inflammatory and pruritic symptoms of corticosteroid-responsive skin conditions such as seborrheic or atopic dermatitis, localized neurodermatitis, psoriasis, the late phase of allergic contact dermatitis and the inflammatory phase of xerosis cutis. Prednicarbate is claimed to have low atrophogenic potential compared to other glucocorticoids [2-3].
Immuno Disease Comments: A glucocorticoid (corticosteroid) drug used to treat dermatitis.
clobetasone  [  (Drugs.com) ]
Clinical Use: Can be used in adults and children for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of steroid responsive dermatoses such as:
