TOPICORT TOPICAL SPRAY (DESOXIMETASONE)

Topicort Topical Spray Description

Topicort Topical Spray is a potent topical corticosteroid that is prescribed to treat plaque psoriasis. This most common form of psoriasis involves raised, red patches of flaky skin. If you need help getting through flare-ups of plaque psoriasis, talk to your doctor about a prescription to buy Topicort Topical Spray with Desoximetasone.

This is not a cure for plaque psoriasis, but an effective and strong corticosteroid medication that can be sprayed onto the affected areas to calm the redness and itching and reduce the plaques. This will enable you to return to your daily tasks without scratching and itching or hiding the affected areas. The plaques are usually found on the scalp, elbows, lower back, and knees and are caused by a misguided immune system.

Interfere with the Inflammation Process for Relief

Topicort Topical Spray is absorbed into your skin cells where it starts a chain reaction by interfering with the transcription of the enzymes that play a part in the inflammation process as well as activating other enzymes known as lipocortins. Lipocortins slow down the action of a key enzyme that is involved in the release of arachidonic acid (AA) from your cell membranes. By inhibiting these actions, the cyclooxygenase enzymes (COX-1 and COX-2) cannot change AA into other substances, including prostaglandins that are responsible for causing inflammation.

Risk Factors for Plaque Psoriasis

Plaque psoriasis is not only itchy and inflamed, it can be unsightly. The plaques are not contagious; they are a result of an immune system that malfunctions and launches an attack because there is a perceived danger. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease and has shown to be an inherited condition that is characterized by remissions and flare-ups. Stress, certain medications, an injury or trauma to your skin, or an infection could cause your immune system to react.

Before Topicort Topical Spray is Applied

To determine if Topicort Topical Spray is safe for you to use, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all current OTC and Rx drugs you take or use. Topical steroid medicines absorbed through the skin may increase the glucose levels in your blood or urine. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding, inform your doctor before using Topicort Topical Spray.

Topicort Topical Spray Precautions

You should not bandage or wrap the skin area treated with Topicort Topical Spray without talking to your doctor first as this can increase the affects of the corticosteroid. Treatment time for using Topicort Topical Spray is usually no longer than four weeks. If there has been little or no improvement during this time, revisit your doctor for further instructions. Keep Topicort Topical Spray away from your face, groin, and underarms. Wash your hands before and after massaging the spray into your skin and keep out of children’s reach.
