Desowen 0.05% Cream effectively treats inflammatory and itchy skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, and Dermatitis.
It functions by inhibiting the actions of chemicals in the body that cause skin inflammation.
Desowen cream reduces the scaly, itchy patches that may develop on the elbows, knees, scalp, and other body areas when treating Psoriasis.
It also treats Eczema and Dermatitis by reducing the redness, rash, pain, and itching caused by the skin's reaction to an irritant.
How does Desowen work
Desonide belongs to the drug class known as Topical Corticosteroids.
Corticosteroids applied topically are absorbed by the skin cells. They prevent these cells from producing certain inflammatory chemicals.
Usually, the skin releases these chemicals in response to irritation or allergens, causing itchy skin, redness and rashes.
Desowen Cream comes with highly positive reviews and is a recommended medication for Eczema, Psoriasis, and Dermatitis.
You should always adhere to your doctor's instructions while undergoing treatment.
