What is Topicort Cream used for? 

This topical medication is indicated to treat patients with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, poison ivy, insect bites, and other types of dermatitis.

It helps reduce skin redness, itching, swelling, and inflammation. Its generic name is desoximetasone.

How does Topicort Cream work? 

When there is a threat from a foreign body, the immune system is alerted as a normal response. It will then direct a bunch of inflammatory cells to contain the inflammation, causing dilation of the blood vessels, which results in redness, swelling, itching, and inflammation.

When this topical medication is administered correctly and absorbed by the skin cells, it prevents the normal reaction of the immune system when there is a threat or injury. If the immune response is inhibited, it reduces inflammation, redness, and swelling.

Topicort Cream Dosage 

The dosage and frequency of desoximetasone medication differ for every individual. It typically depends on the patient’s health status, the severity of the skin condition, and response to the regimen. This drug is available in Topicort cream 0.25%.

The typical dose is to apply a thin film of this medication to affected areas twice daily. Make sure not to administer this medication more than the recommended dosage to prevent unwanted side effects.
