Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

Clobetasol Propionate cream contains the active compound clobetasol propionate, a synthetic corticosteroid, for topical dermatologic (skin) use only.

This product should NOT be used for ophthalmic (eye), oral (mouth) or intravaginal use. No, it is not appropriate to use this product to treat herpes.

Treatments to ease pain include:

  • Over-the-counter pain medication
  • Antiviral creams and ointments
  • Cool cloths placed on blisters or sores
  • Lukewarm baths
  • Loose-fitting clothing

Treatments to speed healing include:

  • Taking oral antiviral medications
  • Keeping blisters or sores dry when not bathing

Treatments for bacterial infection of the blisters or sores include antibiotic medications.

Please see this page for more information.
