Question on Clobetasol ointment

Posted , 2 users are following.

i have been using CLOBETASOL ointment for 2 months. When I checked my vulva today, I see a white substance on top of vulva. Does anyone know if the ointment turns white when placed on vulva? THANKS.

    A white substance usually goes along with thrush (yeast infection). Didn't i see in another post that you had been on antibiotics? That can cause thrush. Furthermore, use of steroid creams, such a clobetasol can cause thrush. Certainly, you should take some anti thrush tablets (e.g. fluconazole) while you are on antibiotics to prevent thrush infection. I always get thrush when i use antibiotics, so i always take flucnazole at the same time.
