Question: Can I purchase Trimovate cream without a prescription?. Have just finished the tube I was prescribed and it is difficult for me to get to see my GP at the moment.

Hello.

Thanks for your query.

Trimovate is a moderately potent steroid cream and is used in cases of Dermatitis and Eczema.

The treatment for such things take time and in case you were prescribed this by a dermatologist you can get another one for repeat use.

In case the problem is still persisting, showing no results or has come up again, then you should get a repeat examination before you continue applying the cream, as topical steroids can lead to thinning of skin, hypo pigmentation of the skin etc.

I hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.

Regards.
