Desonide ointment? what is it?
my doctor subscribe it to me, i googled it but i need more information on what im using Asked by Adelia Bessette 4 months ago.

Desonide (as a cream, ointment, or lotion formulation) is widely used for the treatment of steroid-responsive dermatoses. Desonide is a non-fluorinated corticosteroid. Desonide - Clinical Pharmacology Like other topical corticosteroids, Desonide has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. The mechanism of the anti-inflammatory activity of the topical steroids, in general, is unclear. However corticosteroids are thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, collectively called, lipocortins. It is postulated that these proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is released from membrane phospholipids by phospholipase A2. I hope this helped. Answered by Lizette Serfass 4 months ago.

What does desonide 0.05 cream do?
Asked by Lashell Ransburg 4 months ago.

Desonide Cream is a low potency corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic symptoms of corticosteroid responsive skin diseases (such as eczema, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis). It should not be used for longer than 2 weeks unless directed by a physician. Answered by Marni Golik 4 months ago.

I've used hydrocortisone cream as a standby since I was in kindergarten. It does the job and you don't have to go to the doctor for it, you can get it OTC. Just start with the mild stuff first (.5% solution). But you can go to the doctor still. They will give you something stronger if the rash is severe, usually they'll prescribe an ointment (which is ANNOYING when you've got the itches but it's better). Sometimes, you might even score some free samples to try out! Something that helps during these hot summer months, make sure his bath water isn't too hot (cool is best) and try using a soap-free cleanser like Cetaphil since soap can irritate the rashes. I don't know if this is the case with your child, but my eczema is sometimes aggravated by my diet. Tomatoes, wheat, and chocolate are my triggers (spaghetti irritates me big time but it's just so filling and delicious lol). Try to see if you notice any flare ups after he eats certain things.

i have been suffering from acne for the last 8 years when i became pregnant w/ my first child. since then, it's on again, off again. i keep it under control by using noxzema daily and just keeping the skin as clean and dry as possible. i used this ointment prescribed to my son for a rash the doc spotted during his routine visit. i was just using it thinking about how bad my skin was the other night and if i should go ahead and order proactiv to see if it will work for me. i applied it at bedtime and by morning my face was visibly smoother and silky to the touch. after today, just the second day, my dark spots are lighter and the little acne bumps are half gone. my husband even casually mentioned today that whatever i'v been using is working. the thing is i wasn't even really using this and don't know if i can even continue to use it long term. what is this stuff?! Answered by Spencer Farler 4 months ago.

Desonide is a topical steroid. Your acne is not gone, it is just not inflamed. Keep using the cream, if you wish, because if it's working for you, that's what matters! Answered by Maxwell Sarinana 4 months ago.

Desonide Ointment Answered by Evette Scannell 4 months ago.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL 1/ Never, ever touch your face. 2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day. 3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal 4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal. Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing. 5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again. 6/ Do this for 90 days. 7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to �double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days. Source: A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes. The secret is never to touch the spots Tips on how to treat acne and achieve perfect clear skin in as little as 7 days? Answered by Mitchell Loxley 4 months ago.

im no expert, but i know that its common for people to find success for treating mild acne with baby diaper rash cream! i myself use Zincofax, a diaper rash cream to help with my dry, acne prone skin, and it does wonders! the creams i have heard to be good are the ones that are Zinc-Oxide based. if that is working for you, i would say just make sure if you are putting it on at night, rinse thoroughly in the morning, as it tends to be a thicker cream and you wouldn't want it clogging your pores. good luck, hope i helped.

Desonide Lotion Answered by Ruthe Sylvestre 4 months ago.

There is no cure for eczema. YOu can only try to control it. Desonide is a steroid cream to try to get it under control. The only way to know if it will work for you is to try it. All meds work differently on different people so you will get people on here who tell you it did work and just as many that say it didn't work. One of the best things out there to try besides the script meds is a lotion called Renew. It is made by Melaleuca. Answered by Benedict Budinich 4 months ago.

My Dr recommended tanning beds and it actually worked. Just start slow. The UVA and UVB help dry it . Stops the itching made it go away Answered by Alva Zeni 4 months ago.


Question about Desonide?
Is this product good for removal of hickey marks! Asked by Corina Grudt 4 months ago.

Can you use this cream to remove a hickey mark that doesnt want to leave. I got a hickey about 3 months ago and have recently been using desonide cream. What should I do? For a hickey mark that doesnt want to leave!! arrggg!!! I hate it, plus the spring is coming, so scarf and turtle necks wont do!! HELP!!! Need any suggestions!! Creams or ointments that have good results!!! Answered by Lorelei Wicka 4 months ago.

I dont think that Desonide is meant for removing hickeys. I just found a site that says to lightly brush the area with a stiff bristled toothbrush or a comb because it will break up the blood clot and get things circulating. After this wait 15 minutes and apply an ice pack..repeat if necessary. Answered by Jonie Olofson 4 months ago.

So today he gave me a prescription for Desonide and thought that this might actually work better to fix the problem. Does anyone have any information on which one is better. Should I just stick with what has been working for me? Answered by Eric Esch 4 months ago.

I have lived with atopic dermatitis (eczema) for my entire life. However, two weeks ago, my doctor prescribed Desonide to me. Now, I have little eczema anywhere on my body-just raised skin as the rashes close. Also, remember that moisture is the key to keeping flares down. I recommend a hypoallergenic body lotion (Aveeno) over your entire body (face and neck included). Then additional moisturizer for trouble stops on your body and neck. I recommend Atopiclair (by prescription only) for your face and Elta for your body (non-prescription). Both are quick drying and don't leave your body feeling grimy or sticky. Best of luck! Answered by Colby Grippo 4 months ago.

neither work, they both hide. I use a natural oil for my daughter's eczema, she has very minor flares now, not like the time I was using hydrocort and dreading the next flare. THey give samples to check if it works and they work with allergies etc Answered by Princess Heckart 4 months ago.

In my opinion you did it right. It says when using Desonide don't use Ketaconozole, but after 4 days you stopped it and used the other one, so you didn't use both at the same time. Should be no problem at all.. Answered by Coy Vanharlingen 4 months ago.

I suppose I would have the equal crisis. I as soon as went to a dermatologist they usually did a punch biopsy (clearly took a skin pattern) they usually instructed me i've dermatitis. They said there's no medication and to make use of some thing cream works for me. This was a few yr ago. Do you in finding that it can be worse (the reddest) whilst you get out of the bathe? Cuz it is for me. I plan on goin back to another Dermatologist to get a 2nd opinion. For now i exploit Aveeno and it appears to work pretty just right. Some days that you would be able to infrequently see any flakey or red skin however other days no matter what I try it is very unhealthy. Answered by Janna Hovell 4 months ago.
