Buy Eumovate Cream Online UK

Eumovate is a topical corticosteroid (a type of steroid) from GlaxoSmithKline that relieves irritated and inflamed skin.

You can use Eumovate cream to treat skin conditions that cause itchiness, swelling, redness, dryness and irritation. This includes skin conditions such as:

  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Heat & nappy rash
  • Insect bites & stings
  • Psoriasis

With Prescription Doctor, you can buy Eumovate cream online without a prescription. Following an online consultation, one of our online prescribers can determine whether Eumovate is suitable for you and issue a prescription, which our UK pharmacy can dispense.

If your order is approved before 3 pm on a weekday, our pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day for next-day delivery.

All items dispatched from our pharmacy are packaged in plain tamper-proof packaging to ensure privacy.

How Does Eumovate Work?

Eumovate contains a corticosteroid called clobetasone butyrate that helps to reduce inflammation and irritation in the skin.

When skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis flare up, they can cause unbearable itching and dryness due to a chemical in the body.

Eumovate blocks these chemicals, helping to break the itch-scratch cycle commonly associated with these conditions and alleviating itching so the skin can heal.

How long does Eumovate take to work?

You should begin to see results within the first 7 days. If your skin condition has not improved or has worsened after 4 weeks of application, consult your doctor as soon as possible.

Should I use Eumovate cream or ointment?

Eumovate Ointment and cream are available in 30g and 100g. 

Both creams and ointments have benefits. Eumovate ointment and cream are used to treat skin inflammation. The difference between the two lies in the ratio between oil and water. While a cream has equal parts oil and water, ointments contain about 80 percent oil, and the ointment contains ingredients that make it a thicker, greasier formula than the cream.

Eumovate cream is used to treat areas of moist or weeping skin.

Eumovate ointment is used in areas of dry, flakey or scaly skin.

How Do I Use Eumovate?

Eumovate cream is usually applied 2 times a day.

Always talk to your doctor before using a new skin treatment for skin conditions, particularly if you have allergies or sensitive skin.

Eumovate is a cream that should be applied in a thin layer directly to the afflicted area once or twice a day. Make sure to wash your hand before and after applying Eumovate cream unless you are using Eumovate to treat a condition on your hands.

Dispense 1 fingertip unit of cream. A fingertip unit is an amount of cream from the tip of the finger to the first knuckle.

Massage Eumovate cream gently into the skin. Don’t rub vigorously, as this may upset and aggravate the skin further.

If you are using another topical treatment, such as a moisturiser or medicated cream, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist about using Eumovate in conjunction with them. This is because some topical products can dilute Eumovate, reducing its effectiveness. You should allow adequate time for the product to sink into the skin before following with an emollient to lock in moisture.

How long can I use Eumovate?

You can use Eumovate daily for up to 4 weeks, but you should not continue to use it beyond this point.

How do I stop using Eumovate?

Once you start to see an improvement, you can reduce the frequency of application or change treatment to a less potent medicine. Eumovate should be stopped gradually once your skin condition begins to improve. You should then use an emollient to keep the skin in good condition.

Do not stop using Eumovate abruptly as your skin condition could come back.

Can I use Eumovate on my face?

Do not use Eumovate on your face unless recommended by a doctor – it can sometimes worsen some skin conditions regularly found on the face, such as acne, impetigo and rosacea.

Moreover, you should take caution when using Eumovate to avoid getting the treatment in your eyes. If you do accidentally get Eumovate in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water. If irritation or blurred vision persists, seek immediate medical attention.

Side Effects and Cautions of Eumovate Cream

You must read the patient information leaflet before using Eumovate. The patient information leaflet contains instructions on how to use, store and dispose of Eumovate, as well as important information regarding the product’s safety.

If you are unsure about anything, you read in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.

Who should not use Eumovate cream?

Eumovate is not suitable for everyone.

Do not use Eumovate to treat any of the following conditions, as it could make them worse:

  • A skin infection that is not being treated with another medicine
  • Acne
  • Itchy skin that is not inflamed
  • Rosacea

Speak to your doctor before using Eumovate cream if you:

  • have previously had an allergic reaction to another steroid
  • are using Eumovate around a chronic leg ulcer
  • have been advised to use Eumovate under a dressing
  • are applying Eumovate to the face (especially over a long period)
  • are applying Eumovate to broken skin or inside skin folds

If you are unsure whether Eumovate is suitable for you, speak to our online clinician free of charge.

Eumovate Side Effects

All medicines have the potential to cause side effects. However, not everyone experiences side effects from the medicines they take.

It’s important to remain aware of your medicine's potential risks and report any side effects you experience to your doctor.

Very rare side effects of Eumovate include:

  • Burning, itching, irritation or pain sensations at the site of application
  • Changes in skin colour
  • Decrease in cortisol in your blood
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased blood sugar levels or sugar in the urine
  • Increased hair growth where applied
  • Increased risk of skin infection
  • Localised allergic skin reaction
  • Red, itchy, bumpy skin (rash)
  • Thinning of the skin

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of Eumovate, including a complete list of side effects, can be found within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment.

If you experience any side effects, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, inform your doctor right away.


Do not use Eumovate if you are allergic to clobetasone butyrate or any other ingredients listed within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment.

If you experience signs of an allergic reaction after using Eumovate, stop using Eumovate and seek medical attention immediately by going to your nearest accident and emergency department right away. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you so that doctors treating you know exactly what and how much you took.

Signs of an allergic reaction include:

  • Chest tightening
  • Dry, red and cracked skin
  • Itchy, red watery eyes
  • Raised, itchy, red rash (hives)
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, eyes or face
  • Tummy pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Wheezing

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, are planning on having a baby, or are breastfeeding, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist before using Eumovate cream.

Other safety information

Always use Eumovate cream as prescribed by your doctor.

Inform our prescriber of all medicines you are currently taking, including those prescribed or bought over the counter and any health or herbal supplements.

Warning: Eumovate can cause surfaces it comes into contact with to become highly flammable. While using Eumovate, avoid naked flames such as candles or cigarettes. Wash any surfaces, such as clothing and bedding, which may have come into contact with Eumovate.

Do not use Eumovate past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Never throw away Eumovate via household or water waste, as this can damage the environment. Instead, you should take any unwanted or expired medication to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely.

Always store Eumovate cream out of sight and reach from children and pets.

Never share a medicine prescribed to you with anybody else - even if they are experiencing the same symptoms or have been diagnosed with the same condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I forget to take Eumovate when I should?

If you forget to use Eumovate when you should, use some as soon as you remember and continue to use it as you normally would. Don’t apply extra cream to make up for a missed application.

What should I do if I take too much Eumovate?

If you use too much Eumovate, wipe away the excess with a paper towel and dispose of it in the bin. Using more Eumovate than required is not likely to speed up the healing time, but it may heighten the chances of side effects.

If you apply too many applications of Eumovate in a single day, consult your doctor.

Can I drink alcohol while using Eumovate?

Yes, you can drink alcohol while using Eumovate. The government recommend limiting your alcohol consumption to under 14 units of alcohol per week.

Will Eumovate impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?

Eumovate will not impact your ability to drive or operate heavy machinery. However, if you get Eumovate in your eyes, it may cause blurred vision. Rinse your eyes and avoid driving or operating machinery until your symptoms improve.

Where should I store Eumovate?

Eumovate should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Always keep out of the reach of children. It’s a good idea to store the product with its original box and leaflet insert.
