Desowen Lotion is a steroid that helps reduce inflammation in the body. It treats inflammation and itching caused by eczema or skin conditions that respond to steroid medication.
Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the Desowen Lotion exactly as directed.
Topical medicine is for use only on the skin. Shake the lotion just before each use. Rinse with water if this medicine gets in your eyes or mouth. Wash your hands after Desowen unless you use this medicine to treat the skin on your hands.
Apply a thin layer of the medicine to the affected skin and rub it in gently. Only apply this medicine over a large skin area if your doctor has told you to. Do not cover the treated skin area with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor tells you to. Covering treated areas can increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and may cause harmful effects.
Do not use plastic pants or tight-fitting diapers when treating the diaper area. This medicine is for short-term use only.
