Table of contents:

Ultravate Ointment is a prescription medication used to treat the symptoms of inflammatory, pruritic, and steroid-responsive dermatoses, including plaque psoriasis. When applied to the skin, it works by reducing inflammation, itching, and redness associated with certain skin conditions such as plaque psoriasis and eczema.

Ultravate Ointment contains the active ingredient halobetasol propionate, which belongs to a class of medications known as topical corticosteroids. Halobetasol propionate works by binding to certain receptors in the cells of the skin, which helps to inhibit the production of inflammatory chemicals responsible for the symptoms of skin conditions.

Use and Dosage

Here are the general instructions for using Ultravate Ointment:

  1. Wash and dry your hands
  2. Clean the affected area with mild soap and water and pat dry
  3. Apply a thin layer of Ultravate Ointment to the affected area and gently rub it into the skin.
