Desowen general information

What is Desowen used for?

Desowen Cream 0.05% is used as a topical treatment for inflammatory skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema.  There is a predisposition for eczema due to an inherited atopic tendency where the skin reacts abnormally to irritants and it is common in children.  Eczema is characterised by patches of red itchy scaly inflamed skin.  Desowen Cream 0.05% is also used to treat psoriasis, which is chronic inflammatory autoimmune skin disease, with a genetic predisposition, caused by hyperactivity of the immune system which then attacks self.  Psoriasis is characterised by the appearance of red raised patches of thickened skin covered in a dry silvery scaly rash usually on the skin of the elbows, knees and lower back.  Desowen Cream 0.05% is also used to treat lichen simplex a form of dermatitis made worse by constant itching and scratching.  Desowen Cream 0.05% helps relieve symptoms common to inflammatory skin conditions such as itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling and discomfort.   

How does Desowen work?
