What is Desowen Cream?

Desowen Cream treats the redness, swelling, itching, and discomfort of various skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema. It works by activating natural substances in the skin to reduce swelling, redness, and itching. It is in a class of medications called topical corticosteroids.

Use Desowen Cream only as directed by your doctor. This medicine is for use on the skin only. Do not get it into your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina. Please do not use it on skin areas that have cuts, scrapes, or burns. If it does get on these areas, rinse it off right away with water.

This medicine should come with a patient information leaflet. Read and follow these instructions carefully. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.

Do not use the topical gel on the groin or underarms unless directed to your doctor, and do not use this form for more than four weeks.

To use the Desowen Cream,

  • Wash your hands with soap and water before and after using this medicine.
  • Apply a thin layer of this medicine to the affected skin area. Rub it in gently.
  • The lotion protects the skin from water, clothing, or anything that causes rubbing until the medicine has dried. Also, shake the lotion well before using it.
  • Do not bandage or otherwise wrap the skin being treated unless directed to do so by your doctor.
  • If the medicine is applied to the diaper area of an infant, do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants unless directed to do so by your doctor.
