is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It is a strong corticosteroid. This medication is used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as, itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling, inflammation, and discomfort of various skin conditions, including psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the body) and eczema (a skin disease that causes the skin to be dry and itchy and to sometimes develop red, scaly rashes.)
