Can I bring 50g of prescription topical steroid ointment (Clobetasol) into Thailand without any trouble at Customs?

The main thing to remember when traveling with prescription medicine is to have the prescription label with your name on it. If that label was on a box which you do not carry with the medicine there could be an issue.

Response by poster: The ointment is in its original tube but there is no prescription label with my name on it, nor is there a label on the box it was packaged in. I have looked but I cannot locate the original prescription.

Run to your pharmacy and have them reprint the label for you. Shouldn't be an issue then.

Best answer: I have taken a tube of clobetasol into Thailand (by land and by air), although it was a few years ago. Don't sweat it.
