Desoximetasone for psoriasis?
How long will it take for this cream to clear up a small patch of psoriasis? Also, will it totally eliminate the scales and redness? Asked by Ashely Dirk 4 months ago.

Desoximetasone is a topical adrenocortical steroid so it will clear the patch in a few days if applied daily. Depends on the patch of course, how old the patch is, how big how severe etc. And yes it will also make the flakes and redness to completely disappear. For normal patches I'd day a week or 2. For better results, take a warm shower for at least 10 minutes, or apply a towel with hot water in the area before applying the cream. This will open the skin pores and help to absorb the cream better. Answered by Louie Jernejcic 4 months ago.


I have plaque psoriasis, does desoximetasone and triamcinolone creams work the same?
I was first prescribed desoximetasone, which seemed to work good, however was very expensive. I was then prescribed triamcinolona cream, and I was wondering if anyone know if one was better or what. Thanks! Asked by Scott Phyfe 4 months ago.

Desoximetasone is a higher-potency corticosteroid than triamcinolone, but triamcinolone may provide just as much relief. You generally obtain the best results with "combination therapy", when you use a topical corticosteroid along with a medication like salicylic acid and or a vitamin D cream (calcipotriene). However, phototherapies are more effective than drugs and have fewer side effects than most systemic agents. In a 2000 analysis comparing psoriasis treatments, an advanced phototherapy called narrow band UVB achieved the highest complete clearance rate (86% of patients). Good luck!

Triamcinolone For Psoriasis Answered by Keren Fitzen 4 months ago.

I had a 13 year history of psoriasis, though I was in good health otherwise. But these severe large, thick and scaly excoriated plaques on my neck, ears, trunk and limbs ruined the way I was leading my life. I would be with red, inflamed itchy skin for most part of the year and these silvery scales would seem to be erupting without any reason. To make matters worse, blisters would appear over already red and itching skin. It was living hell. I was treated with various options but nothing seemed to be working. Some of the treatments that I underwent in this depressing period of 13 years included tar preparation, tropical steroids and anthralin. I was also given light therapy many times but everything I tried would give me temporary relief. And soon, after a few days I would be plagued with the situation again. In one of those moments when I was completely lost I stumbled upon this website just by chance. I read it and felt that as if someone had put the story my life on this web page. I was thoroughly convinced that if ANYONE can cure me of condition, it would be you. And was I right, or what. I started recovering within 3 days of starting this treatment. Something that had become a painful part of me for 13 years was actually getting healed! My ears are healed and my neck is smooth again!. I am a month into the treatment and I have never felt better in my life! Psoriasis Revolution? Answered by Dacia Meath 4 months ago.

My best friend has psoriasis and he wasted so much money on desoximetasone creams. He later switched to triamcinolone creams and it worked the same and was cheaper! Answered by Randy Rady 4 months ago.

My daughter has severe psoriasis. One thing that can help is tanning , either natural or go to a tanning salon. My daughter also has diabetes and some of her medicine gives her a bad reaction when she is exposed to the sun or tanning salon, so she is unable to use this type of treatment. It does work tho. She has done it, but she gets sick when she does. Answered by Argelia Marzette 4 months ago.

I was diagnosed with rosacea last year after i turned 33. The doctor prescribed me metrogel but it does not help my face. my mom had some desomimetsone .25% cream and she gave it to me and i have been putting that on my face. It helps my face but i have to apply it every night to notice any improvement and my face is still red but not like it would be if i didn't use it. i looked up this ointment and saw that it is a steroid and it shouldn't be used for rosacea. Has anybody else used this cream for rosacea? Answered by Marjory Linder 4 months ago.

Yes and had bad results too. It is an antiinflammatory agent, but while it temporarily suppresses the inflammation and redness, it actually aggravates the process. As long as you use it you get partial benefit. Every time you try to stop it will flare. You need to get off it or risk damaging the skin on the face. There are more aggressive treatments available if the metrogel won't get you through any flare. Answered by Lilliam Athan 4 months ago.

Why is desoximetasone ointment so expensive?
Asked by Felipa Peelle 4 months ago.

Good question. It really shouldn't be, as it's been around for quite a while, and it's certainly far from being the strongest one available. I just checked with the pharmacy, and a 15 gm tube sells for $50. Answered by Karin Beckim 4 months ago.

This was added long after the death Of Jesus to give the impression that he was aware of his impending demise. What you need to remember is that the bible was compiled under the auspices of the roman emperor Constantine in an attempt to bring all of the various belief systems of the empire under a common faith. The result was to be the universal or catholic faith. The word Catholic is derived from the Greek adjective καθολικός (katholikos), meaning "universal". There is nothing wrong with this and I do not mean for it to sound derogatory. You just need to realize that it is an amalgamation of the various faiths and the dogma and theology of these belief systems. Even assuming benevolence on the part of Constantine’s people, making this all make sense would have been a monumental task. The bible relied heavily on Jewish scripture and the New Testament was highly modified to support Paul’s teachings, which included such localized ideas as blood sacrifices to wash away sins, virgin births and resurrection of deceased deities. Sadly much of the central part of the Jesus theology was lost in the blended mythology. A mythology was created around a great teacher comparable to the Buddha and he was turned into an amalgam of all of the Mediterranean deities. His teachings on love and non-judgment were all but lost in a maze of judgmental often-vindictive gibberish that he would have never agreed with. Sadly some of the greatest teachings of all time were all but lost in Rome’s effort to be all thing to all people Love and blessings Don Answered by Kari Tempesta 4 months ago.


Can i use desoximetasone on cold sores?
can i !??!1 or will it make things worse... Asked by Eunice Barnhart 4 months ago.

I wouldn't try it unless it says its for cold sores. To relieve the cold sore start putting ice on it and maybe try putting tea bags on it. Answered by Wonda Friendly 4 months ago.
