Desonide Topical Cream

By reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system, desonide cream (DesOwen®) can help treat skin conditions like dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema. As a topical medicine, desonide cream is applied directly on the affected areas of the skin two to three times daily. Your dosage will depend on the type and severity of the skin condition being treated.
 
Stinging, burning, and other skin irritations are some of the possible side effects of this medication. Desonide cream may not be suitable for people who are taking certain medications or who have certain allergies. Also, it is important to tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before starting treatment with this medicine.
 
It is not usually recommended to use this medicine for long periods of time, as it may lead to serious problems like diabetes or Cushing's syndrome. Because it is a type of steroid, desonide cream may also suppress the body's ability to produce its own natural steroids.
