What is Diprosone Ointment?

Diprosone Ointment is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of plaque psoriasis and steroid-responsive dermatoses. It is a highly potent steroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Only use Diprosone Ointment as directed by your provider and for the prescribed skin condition. This medication might not work for all skin problems.

  • Wash your hands after each time you apply Diprosone.
  • Please don't use more than one corticosteroid-containing medication(s) at once without talking to your provider because it can raise your risk of side effects.
  • Let your provider know if you experience skin irritation, side effects, or vision changes.
  • If you're applying this medication to your child's diaper area, don't use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants to avoid skin irritation.
  • Let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Before Taking Diprosone Ointment

Before taking Diprosone Ointment, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • If you are allergic to it,
  • Skin irritation after using steroid medicine;
  • Thinning of the skin;
  • Cataracts or glaucoma;
  • Diabetes;
  • Liver disease;
  • Adrenal gland problems; or
  • Any skin infection.
  • It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant.
  • If you are breastfeeding a baby,
  • Diprolene is not approved for use by anyone younger than 13 years old. 

Diprosone Ointment Side Effects

Diprosone Ointment causes common side effects that include:

Burning, itching, irritation, or dryness at the application site may occur when this medication is first applied to the skin. As your body adjusts to the medication, this should disappear in a few days.

Tell your doctor immediately if you have any serious side effects, including stretch marks, skin thinning/discoloration, acne, excessive/unwanted hair growth, and small red bumps on the skin.

Skin infections can become worse when this medication is used. Tell your doctor if redness, swelling, or irritation does not improve.

These side effects are more likely in children and people who use this medication for a long time or over large areas of the skin. Tell your doctor immediately if the following side effects occur: unusual/extreme tiredness, weight loss, headache, swelling ankles/feet, increased thirst/urination, and vision problems.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help immediately if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.

FAQs

How long should you use Diprosone Ointment?

For most formulations of betamethasone, you can use it for up to 2 weeks unless your provider tells you otherwise. 

Can Diprosone Ointment be applied to the face safely?

Unless your provider directs, avoid using betamethasone on the face, groin, armpit, or areas where the skin has been thinned out. 

Does covering the treatment area speed up healing?

 It would be best if you didn't use anything to cover the treated area. Doing so can cause your body to absorb more medication, and you could develop more side effects, such as skin irritation.
