Get help for your psoriasis with Dovobet ointment.

January 11, 2008 | by DoctorSolve

Dovobet ointment is used for treating constant plaque psoriasis and has two active ingredients, betamethasone dipropionate and calcipotriol hydrate. Calcipotriol is derived from vitamin D and helps in reducing the production of skin cells.
In psoriasis, the scaling and thickening of the skin and the appearance of raised plaques are the result of excessive skin cell production in this disease. Calcipotriol reduces excessive skin cell production and helps improve these symptoms of psoriasis.
Betamethasone, a corticosteroid, is used for reducing skin inflammation. Skin inflammation is caused by the release of various substances vital to the immune system. As a result the blood vessels widen and the affected area becomes red, swollen, itchy and painful. Betamethasone works by reducing the release of these provocative substances.
