Table of contents:

Diprolene Lotion is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid used to treat inflammation caused by a range of skin conditions such as plaque psoriasis and eczema. The active ingredient in Diprolene Lotion is betamethasone dipropionate, which helps to reduce inflammation and itching by suppressing the immune response in the affected area.

Treatment with Diprolene Lotion should be limited to a maximum of 2 consecutive weeks, as prolonged use may increase the risk of side effects such as thinning of the skin. Corticosteroids like betamethasone dipropionate work by decreasing the immune system's response to inflammation, which in turn reduces the symptoms associated with various skin conditions such as plaque psoriasis and eczema.

Use and Dosage

Diprolene Lotion should be applied to the affected area once or twice daily, as directed by your healthcare provider, and then massaged lightly until the lotion disappears into the skin. This helps to ensure that the medication is evenly distributed throughout the affected area and can begin to work effectively to reduce inflammation, itching, and other symptoms associated with skin conditions such as plaque psoriasis and eczema.

Here is how to use Diprolene Lotion:

  1. Clean the affected skin area with mild soap and water and pat dry.
  2. Shake the lotion bottle well before use.
  3. Apply a few drops of the lotion to the affected area once or twice daily.
  4. Gently massage the lotion into the skin until it disappears.
  5. Make sure to wash your hands after applying the lotion unless you are treating your hands.
  6. Avoid using the lotion on the face, underarms, or groin unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Take Diprolene Lotion only as prescribed. Do not use more than recommended or for longer than prescribed, as this can increase the risk of side effects. If your skin condition worsens or does not improve after using the lotion, talk to your doctor.

Cautions

  • Diprolene Lotion belongs to the super-high range of potency in comparison with other topical corticosteroids. Therefore, it should be used cautiously and only as directed by your healthcare provider, as overuse or extended use can lead to side effects such as skin thinning, discoloration, or stretch marks.
