Diprosalic is used to treat inflammatory skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterised by red and scaly plaques. Eczema is a skin condition where people experience redness, itching, and swelling or blistering of the skin.
Diprosalic ointment contains two active ingredients, betamethasone and salicylic acid. These ingredients work in different ways to effectively treat these conditions.
Betamethasone dipropionate belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. When applied to the skin, corticosteroids have multiple effects, such as:
Salicylic acid is often used to treat skin conditions that involve scaling or overgrowth of skin cells, such as psoriasis. It works by softening keratin, a protein that is found in the skin structure. This helps to loosen dry, scaly, or thickened skin so it can be removed easily.
When salicylic acid is used in combination with other medicines, such as betamethasone, it takes off the upper layer of the skin. This allows betamethasone to reach the skin underneath to help heal it more effectively.
Diprosalic is available in two forms, Diprosalic ointment and Diprosalic scalp application. Both contain the same active ingredients:
The differences between the two products are the form and other added ingredients.
Always follow the instructions given by your doctor. You should continue using Diprosalic for as long as your doctor has recommended.
If your skin condition has not improved or worsened during or after treatment, you should speak to your doctor.
Most people can use Diprosalic for skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. However, it may not be suitable for everyone.
Do not use Diprosalic ointment if you:
Diprosalic should not be used in nappy rash, fungal, or bacterial skin infections without other anti-infective therapy.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding or are planning to have a baby, talk to your doctor before using this medicine.
To use Diprosalic safely, follow these instructions:
Make sure you tell your doctor if you use any other medicines, especially if you already use any other corticosteroid medicines.
If you need to use other topical medicines on the same area of the skin, try to space out the application of each product by a few minutes. This allows each product to be absorbed into your skin and prevents them from mixing together.
Like all medicines, Diprosalic can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them, especially when the ointment is used correctly.
Side effects may include:
Side effects are more likely to occur if you apply too much of Diprosalic, and if you use it:
If you use this ointment regularly for long periods of time, you may experience a withdrawal reaction when you stop treatment. This is a condition where the steroid causes a rebound reaction in which the skin gets worse.
For a full list of side effects, read the patient information leaflet included with your order. If you experience any side effects that concern you, speak to your doctor.
