Hello Dear. Clobetasol cream is a topical corticosteroid. It works by decreasing certain immune responses, which reduces redness and itching of skin.

Other creams of similar nature are- Betnovate, prednisolone, traiamcinolone, hydrocortisone, fluticasone, dexamethasone.

Hope i have answered your question. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions. I ll be glad to help you.
All the best
With warm regards
