Desoximetasone Spray Side Effects

Extensive studies have shown that skin reactions are commonly reported side effects of desoximetasone spray. This includes dry skin, irritation, and itching at the application site. Fortunately, if reactions do occur, they tend to be minor and easy to treat. However, some problems may be serious and require immediate medical attention, including infections, severe fluid retention, and difficulty breathing.
