Calcipotriol is utilized for the treatment of psoriasis, a skin condition characterized by the overproduction of skin cells. It can be employed either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other medications, such as topical corticosteroids. Calcipotriol is within the category of medications referred to as vitamin D analogues. Its mechanism of action involves controlling the excessive production of skin cells commonly observed in individuals affected by psoriasis.

Uses and Dosage

Apply this medication exclusively on the skin. Before application, comb the hair to eliminate any scaly flakes. Apply the medication solely to the affected areas of the scalp and gently massage it in, typically twice daily or as instructed by your doctor.

Be cautious not to let any solution spread onto the forehead or unaffected areas. After application, wash your hands.

Avoid applying the medication on the face, in the eyes, nose, or mouth, or inside the vagina. If accidental contact occurs in these areas, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

Adhere strictly to the prescribed frequency and duration of application. Overuse or prolonged application may heighten the risk of side effects.

Consistent use of this medication is vital for optimal results. To help with adherence, apply it at the same times each day.

Notify your doctor if your condition fails to improve or deteriorates. Improvement in your skin condition is typically observed after two weeks of treatment.
