What is Daivobet Ointment used for :
It is used only on skin affected by plaque-type psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin disorder in which skin cells are overactive. The calcipotriol in Daivobet ointment treats the overactive skin cells. The betamethasone dipropionate relieves redness, welling, itching and irritation of the skin.
Daivobet ointment is used in the type of psoriasis, where “plaques” form in the skin. Plaques are raised, rough, reddened areas covered with fine, dry silvery scales. Plaques are usually about one to two centimetres across.
How to use Daivobet Ointment :
Apply enough ointment to completely cover the psoriasis plaques.
One fingertip unit (FTU) is enough to cover an area of skin twice the size of your palm. For example, if the area to be treated is 2 elbows and 2 knees, you may require up to 4 FTU’s of ointment.
One fingertip unit (FTU) is the amount of ointment, squeezed out of a tube, from the tip of an adult’s index finger to the first crease in the finger.
The area treated should not be more than 30% of the body surface area (BSA). (Note: this is approximately the area on one
whole leg and one whole arm.)
