Treatment of psoriasis and excema with Dermovate

A large number of techniques and treatments exist for the management of psoriasis amongst them - anti-inflammatory therapy with Dermovate which is used in treatment of non-plaque psoriasis, and other conditions such as excema, lichen multiforme, lupus erythematosus, and etc.

The preparation is a glucocorticoid, which is intended for external use. The drug expresses anti-inflammatory and antiallergic effects, removes swelling, hyperemia and itching at the place of application. The preparation is intended for external use only and should not be applied to mucous surfaces. In local use, especially in cases when the place of application is covered by an occlusive bandage or is bruised, systemic absorption of the drug is possible, which may lead to development of systemic side-effects. The active ingredient of the drug Clobetasole propionate does not bind to blood proteins at the same rate as hydrocortisone, but has a longer half-life time. The drug is metabolized via the liver and partially via the kidneys. The drug is excreted with urine.

  1. Individuals with psoriasis may experience significant physical discomfort and some disability. Itching and pain can interfere with basic functions, such as self-care, walking, and sleep. Plaques on hands and feet can prevent individuals from working at certain occupations, playing some sports, and caring for family members or a home. The frequency of medical care is costly and can interfere with an employment or school schedule. People with moderate to severe psoriasis may feel self-conscious about their appearance and have a poor self-image that stems from fear of public rejection and psychosexual concerns. Psychological distress can lead to significant depression and social isolation.
