Treat Eczema, Rashes, Insect Bites and Other Forms of Dermatitis with ApexiCon Ointment

ApexiCon Ointment or generic Diflorasone Diacetate is a strong formulation of a corticosteroid your doctor can prescribe to treat the symptoms of redness, swelling, itchiness, and dry skin patches that can occur from poison ivy or oak, insect bite or sting, contact with an allergen, a skin condition that may flare-up on occasion, such as eczema or psoriasis. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Topical Corticosteroids Work

When applied as directed, ApexiCon Ointment (also called Psorcon) will be absorbed into your skin cells and enter the cell’s nuclei in order to turn off certain DNA factors that result in the production of lipocortins. This group of chemicals interferes with the process of making the inflammatory compounds that cause the redness and swelling, as well as blocking the release of histamine to decrease itchiness.

Treatment for Plaque Psoriasis

Due to the potency of ApexiCon Ointment, this may be the best treatment for plaque psoriasis as it will retain moisture in your skin to help soften the thick, raised areas of dry skin. Experts are not certain of what causes psoriasis, but it is thought to be an autoimmune disease that has your skin cell cycle producing new skin cells every 3 or 4 days instead of every 4 weeks. This means that the old skin cells do not have time to shed or slough off so new cells stick to the older skin cells and cause the raised patch of dry, itchy skin.

Before Applying ApexiCon Ointment

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding before you apply ApexiCon Ointment to be certain that it is not harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help your doctor determine if ApexiCon Ointment is the right topical product for you.

Do’s and Don’ts with ApexiCon Ointment

ApexiCon Ointment is a very potent topical corticosteroid so it should not be applied longer than your doctor has recommended. Do not cover or bandage the treated skin area, unless told otherwise by your doctor, as this can significantly raise your risk of side effects. Never share ApexiCon Ointment with others, especially young children. Keep ApexiCon Ointment out of sight and reach of children.
