Diprosone Cream is used on the skin to relieve the redness, swelling, itching and discomfort of many skin problems such as:
- psoriasis (a stubborn skin disorder with raised, rough, reddened areas covered with dry, fine silvery scales)
- eczema (an often itchy skin condition with redness, swelling, oozing of fluid, crusting which may lead to scaling)
- Inflammatory skin condition with greasy, red and scaly areas (seborrhoeic dermatitis).
- Allergic skin reactions.
- Thickened skin rash caused by excessive scratching to relieve itching (neurodermatitis, eg lichen simplex).
An eruption of hard nodules in the skin accompanied by intense itching (prurigo nodularis).
- Skin disorder causing a flat, itchy, violet rash, usually on the wrists, shins, lower back and genitals (lichen planus).
- Inflammatory skin disease known as discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE).
- Intense and widespread reddening of the skin (generalised erythroderma) in combination with oral or injected corticosteroids.
How to use Diprosone Cream
Once to twice daily. In most cases a thin film of Diprosone Cream should be applied to cover the affected area twice daily. For some patients adequate maintenance therapy may be achieved with less frequent application.
Diprosone Cream is especially appropriate for moist or weeping surfaces and the ointment for dry, lichenifield or scaly lesions but this is not invariably so.
Control over the dosage regimen may be achieved during intermittent and maintenance therapy by using Diprobase Cream or Ointment, the base vehicles of Diprosone Cream and Ointment. Such control may be necessary in mild and improving dry skin conditions requiring low dose steroid treatment.
