Diprosalic Ointment is a medication used to treat skin and scalp conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and seborrhea. It is a combination medication containing two active ingredients: betamethasone dipropionate and salicylic acid.
Diprosalic ointment works by combining two active ingredients: betamethasone dipropionate and salicylic acid. Betamethasone dipropionate is a corticosteroid that helps reduce inflammation and swelling in the affected area of skin. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic agent that works by breaking down the outer layer of skin cells, which can help to reduce scaling and itching. Together, these ingredients help to relieve the symptoms of certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema.
