Blog Dovobet Gel – What You Need To Know For Effective Treatment

If you are struggling with psoriasis, you know how frustrating the symptoms can be – the redness, the scaling, the itchiness. It all comes down to your skin cells growing too quickly.

That is where Dovobet Gel comes in. It is a potent medicated gel that calms your skin and brings it back into balance. The gel contains two active ingredients that work in combination to help soothe and calm your skin condition:

  • Calcipotriol: This ingredient acts as a gentle brake, slowing down the excessive growth of your skin cells.
  • Betamethasone: This part of the team tackles the inflammation and redness that often comes with psoriasis.

Together, they relieve the discomfort and visible signs of psoriasis, helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin. If you have been unsuccessful with other topical skin treatments for psoriasis, it is worth speaking to your doctor about trying Dovobet Gel. It could be the partner your skin needs.

How does it work?

Dovobet Gel contains calcipotriol and Betamethasone, which work together to help control psoriasis from two different perspectives. 

Calcipotriol is a form of vitamin D, a naturally occurring substance crucial in skin cell growth and development. In psoriasis, skin cells multiply too quickly, leading to the formation of thick, scaly patches. Calcipotriol works by:

  • Slowing Down Skin Cell Growth: It acts as a regulator, slowing down the excessive production of skin cells characteristic of psoriasis.
  • Promoting Normal Skin Cell Development: It helps skin cells mature and develop normally rather than piling up and forming plaques.

By addressing these two key aspects, Calcipotriol helps reduce the thickness and scaling of psoriasis patches, leading to smoother, healthier-looking skin. It is important to note that Calcipotriol does not cure psoriasis, but it can significantly improve symptoms and provide relief.

Betamethasone is a type of medication called a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are similar to hormones that your body naturally produces, and they play a crucial role in reducing inflammation.

In psoriasis, inflammation causes redness, swelling, and discomfort. Betamethasone works by:

  • Calming the Immune Response: It interacts with your immune system to suppress the overactive response that triggers inflammation in psoriasis.
  • Reducing Inflammation: It actively decreases the swelling, redness, and itchiness associated with psoriasis plaques.

By tackling inflammation at its source, Betamethasone helps relieve the discomfort of psoriasis and promotes healing of the affected skin. However, it is important to use Betamethasone as directed by your doctor, as prolonged or excessive use can lead to side effects.

How do I use Dovobet Gel?

Here is how to make the most of Dovobet Gel and find relief from your psoriasis symptoms:

  • Target the Trouble Spots: Apply a thin layer of Dovobet Gel directly to the areas of your skin affected by psoriasis.
  • Focus on the Psoriasis Plaques: Avoid using it on healthy skin or areas not affected by psoriasis.
  • Keep Away from Sensitive Areas: Do not apply Dovobet Gel to your face or genitals.
  • Once a Day is the Way: Use the gel once daily, preferably at the same time each day.

Follow the Recommended Treatment Period:

  • For your scalp: Use Dovobet Gel for up to 4 weeks.
  • For other areas of your body: Use it for up to 8 weeks.
  • Your doctor may recommend a more extended treatment period if needed.

After applying Dovobet Gel, wash your hands thoroughly to avoid accidental contact with your eyes or other sensitive areas. If you have concerns or questions about using Dovobet Gel, always talk to your doctor. They can provide personalised advice based on your specific condition.

With consistent use as directed by your doctor, Dovobet Gel can help you manage your psoriasis and enjoy smoother, healthier-looking skin.
