Description

What is Desowen Lotion?

Desowen Lotion also known as Desonide is used to treat a variety of skin conditions (e.g., eczema, dermatitis, allergies, rash). Desonide reduces the swelling, itching and redness that can occur in these types of conditions. Desonide is a mild corticosteroid.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Use this medication only on the skin.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Before applying the medication, clean and dry the affected area. Apply a thin film of the medication to the affected area and gently rub in, usually 2-3 times daily, or as directed by your doctor.
  • If using the gel, apply the gel usually only 2 times daily. Do not bandage, wrap, or cover the area unless you are instructed to do so by your doctor. If used in the diaper area on an infant, do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants.
  • After applying the medication, wash and dry your hands, unless you are using this medication to treat the hands.
  • When applying this medication near the eyes, avoid getting it in the eyes because this may worsen or cause glaucoma, or cause irritation. Also, avoid getting this medication in the nose or mouth. If you get this medication in your eyes, nose, or mouth, rinse right away with plenty of water.
  • Do not use if there is an infection or sore in the area to be treated.

If used during breastfeeding, avoid applying the medication to the breast/nipple area to prevent the infant from swallowing the medication.
