About Diprosone Lotion 30 ml

Diprosone Lotion 30 ml belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids primarily used to prevent allergies including swelling, itching redness, heat, and pain caused due to certain skin problems such as psoriasis (scales and itchy, dry patches), dermatitis (itchy, swelling of the skin) and eczema (itchy, cracked, swollen or rough skin). The swelling of the skin occurs when an allergic reaction or skin irritation releases several substances in the skin that widens blood vessels and cause itching, redness, pain, and swelling in the irritated area.

Diprosone Lotion 30 ml is a steroid that works by acting inside skin cells and inhibiting the release of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause redness, itching, and swelling. When the skin reacts to any type of allergens, such chemicals are released normally.

Use Diprosone Lotion 30 ml as prescribed. You are advised to use Diprosone Lotion 30 ml for as long as your doctor has prescribed it based on your medical condition.

Most of these side effects of Diprosone Lotion 30 ml do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Diprosone Lotion 30 ml or any other medicines, please tell your doctor.

Do not use Diprosone Lotion 30 ml in more than prescribed doses, or on a large area of skin for a prolonged time as it may cause adverse effects.
