Treating psoriasis Calcipotriol and Betamethasone Daivobet Ointment

Uses
Daivobet Ointment (Calcipotriol/Betamethasone) is applied directly to the skin to treat plaque psoriasis. This specially formulated ointment combines two ingredients, which work together to treat plaques (raised areas on the skin, which are rough and scaly). These symptoms occur as a result of overactive skin cell production by the body. Calcipotriol (an active ingredient in this ointment) is derived from vitamin D. It decreases abnormal production of skin cells, thereby helping to clear scaling and plaques. This ointment also contains betamethasone, a type of corticosteroid, which reduces inflammation and itchiness.

Dosage and administration
Daivobet Ointment (Calcipotriol/Betamethasone) should only be applied to the skin. Care must be taken to ensure that it is only applied to areas of the skin affected by psoriasis. Ask your doctor how long treatment is required, as well as how often you should apply it. Patients are normally told by their doctor to apply it once per day, for a period of 4 weeks. You should not use it for longer than 4 weeks unless your doctor has told you to. Covering in excess of 30% of the body area is not advised. Never apply more than 100g of ointment in any 1 week period.
