About Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml

Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml belongs to the class of 'antipsoriatic agents', primarily used to treat psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin disorder in which skin cells multiply and form bumpy (uneven) red patches covered with white scales. These red patches can commonly appear on the scalp, elbows, knees and lower back.

Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml consists of two medicines, namely: Clobetasol (corticosteroid) and Calcipotriol (synthetic Vitamin D). Clobetasol is a highly potent 'corticosteroid' with anti-inflammatory, antipruritic (relieves itching) and vasoconstrictive (narrows blood vessels) properties. It blocks the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers), which make the skin red, swollen and itchy. On the other hand, Calcipotriol (also known as calcipotriene) is a man-made form of Vitamin D that belongs to the class of antipsoriatic agents. It helps in the inhibition of the overproduction of skin cells. It is used to treat plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris), a condition that develops thick red patches on the skin with a silver or white scaly layer. 

Use this medication on the skin only as advised by the doctor. Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml is generally safe to use. Some may experience common side effects like itching, redness, stinging sensation, dryness and rash. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. If these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

Avoid contact with your eyes, nose or mouth while using Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml. Rinse it off with water thoroughly if you get the cream in these areas. Brief your medical history to the doctor if you are allergic to Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml or any of its components. Let your doctor know if you have any active skin infections before using Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml only with proper consultation and caution. Calpsor C Lotion 20 ml is not recommended for children less than 12 years of age.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Psoriasis: It is a skin disorder in which skin cells multiply and form bumpy (uneven) red patches covered with white scales. These red patches can commonly appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Psoriasis is a noncontagious (not spread by contact), chronic immune condition with no cure. It can be mild, moderate and severe based on the patches coverage on the skin. People with 80-90% suffering from psoriasis have plaque psoriasis. Psoriasis can be pustular, guttate, inverse and erythrodermic. Pustular psoriasis mainly covers palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Guttate psoriasis usually starts in childhood or young age and affects the torso and limbs. Inverse psoriasis forms bright red lesions in armpits, groin and under the breasts. Erythrodermic psoriasis is triggered by sunburn, infections and certain medications that cause redness and shedding of the skin.
