What is the difference between locoid lipocream and clobetasol propionate cream?
it seems like both of them are used for inflammation, but what is the difference between the two?
Asked by Brett Crager 2 years ago.
In a word, "potency". The locoid is a nonfluorinated cortisone product, and is rated as a low potency cream. The clobetasol is a fluorinated cortisone product, and rated as a strong cream. Having said that, you certainly wouldn't ever want to apply the strong one to the face, as it can damage the skin there, causing atrophy and bruising, and if used around the eyes, cause glaucoma. On the other hand, if the problem is on a thicker body part, then the Locoid probably would be too weak to cause any benefit. Answered by Lavera Molnau 2 years ago.
Double cream as most people have said is higher in fat but that doesn't answer your question! Double cream has a minimum fat content of 48% - single cream has a minimum fat content of 18%. Double cream is higher in butterfat than single cream and is known in the US as heavy cream - single cream being known as light cream. To cook with cream - such as in creme anglaise and patisserie creme you will need double cream as it can heat to a higher temperature than single and the higher buttermilk content sustains it's abililty to adapt to almost a scalding point temperature. Double cream can also be whipped - unlike single cream - although this depends on what you are using it for - whipping cream has a lighter texture when whipped; however it cannot really be used for folding into mousses because it cannot maintain its structure for cooking purposes. Double cream is an infinitely superior ingredient for mouses, ice creams, cooking, custards etc - but if you overwhip ....... it tastes like a sad day with mascapone left out of the fridge for 6 hours! i.e. can become bitter and worse than cheese like. Single cream is best kept as a pouring cream or in coffee etc. For macaroni cheese - you should not be using cream - just full cream milk for the cheese sauce.

locoid lipocream hydrocortisone butyrate 0.1% or Apexicon cream 0.5%? the dermatologist I think said the apexicon was stronger, but the percentage is less so it didn't make sense to me. I have an inflamed wound on my arm they are treating. When I put the locoid on, I didn't feel weird. but when I put the apexicon on I felt a bit speeded out. I also had to apply an antibiotic called Bactroban, but I don't really think that's what made me feel strange? any thoughts?? thanks Answered by Willia Campbell 2 years ago.
i believe that the apexicon is stronger. while 0.05% is certainly less than 0.1%, stronger medications usually come in lower strengths because a low strength of a potent medication may have the same effect as a higher strength of a less potent medication. Answered by Janessa Dennehy 2 years ago.

I've had a continuously worsening problem with the dry skin on my nose for a year now and i was hoping that this might fix it. However, i looked up the cream online and it says it is for a skin condition known as eczema which i dont have. Should i use the cream for like 2 weeks just to see if it helps? The doctor told me that it wouldn't make things worse but that it may not fix the problem. Answered by Terrence Vanleeuwen 2 years ago.
As Eczema is a dry skin condition, this cream may work for your nose as you say that it's very dry so give it a go after all, you've nothing to lose. Also, this could be the Dermatologists way of confirming whether you have developed eczema or not. KD Answered by Jack Fakhoury 2 years ago.
