How long can one use Dovate ointment?

Dovate ointment, which contains the drug clobetasol propionate, is intended for short term use. According to the South African Electronic Package Inserts database, the package insert for Dovate recommends that treatment not extend beyond 4 weeks without consulting with the prescribing physician. The National Institute of Health's MedlinePlus resource advises not using clobetasol for more than 14 days without your doctor's approval. If extended use is necessary, your doctor might prescribe a less potent dosage of clobetasol. Ultimately, consult with your physician if you feel that the ointment is not helping, or you are unsure if you should continue use.
