What is Dovonex Ointment for?
Please note: Only buy Dovonex Ointment 30g or 60g for the treatment of plaque psoriasis affecting the body. You cannot order Dovonex online for treating symptoms present on your face.
Please note: Like many other psoriasis treatments, Dovonex is applied topically, making it ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing pills.
You can buy Dovonex Ointment online from Medical Specialists® for the treatment of plaque psoriasis present anywhere on the body except for the face or scalp.
When you have the skin condition psoriasis, plaques are caused by an irregular and rapid production of skin cells. Plaques are patches of red-coloured skin which is raised, usually with silvery-white flakes.
Due the fact that shedding of older cells does not increase at a similarly fast speed, plaques can build-up quickly on the skin. However, when you buy Dovonex Ointment, it works to reduce the speed at which these skin cells can be produced.
How does Dovonex Ointment work?
The active ingredient in Dovonex is Calcipotriol, a derivative of Vitamin D, and belongs to a class of drugs called anti-psoriatics.
After Dovonex is applied topically to the affected area of skin, the active ingredient works to reduce the speed of the reproduction of the skin cells (a primary cause of plaque psoriasis). This prevents them from creating inflamed, red, scaly patches on your skin.
The medication works to rapidly smooth out scaly skin, reduces redness, and soothes irritated skin. Some people have noted significant improvements in their symptoms within just 2 weeks using Dovonex, although this timeframe may be longer for others.
How to use Dovonex Ointment
When you buy Dovonex online for psoriasis, apply the ointment as per the instructions from your doctor, and in accordance with the directions for use outlined in the manufacturer’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). If you are still unsure, check with your doctor.
Your dose may vary according to how severe your symptoms are. Your doctor will have prescribed a dose suitable for you.
Use the medicine once or twice each day, following the advice of your doctor. However, do not use more than 100g of Dovonex Ointment each week.
It is often noted that for the best results in adults, Dovonex should be applied twice daily, but this should be confirmed with your doctor first, as your own doctor may advise you use the medicine only once daily for a particular reason. If you use it twice a day, use it in the morning and in the evening. So you remember to apply the Dovonex, it may help to use it when you do another regular daily action, such as brushing your teeth.
What are the possible side effects of Dovonex Ointment?
Side effects are rare, and most people don’t get any. Possible side effects may vary from one person to the next, as with any medication. You should always read the manufacturer’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) before using or any other medication.
