SORVATE C OINTMENT 20G
SORVATE C OINTMENT 20G belongs to a class of medicines called 'steroids' given in combination with vitamin used in the treatment of auto-immune skin disorders like psoriasis (scaly, itchy, and red patches on the skin). It is indicated for the adults and the children above 12 years of age. Autoimmune skin disorders are conditions in which immune cells attack the body's healthy cells, causing inflammation. SORVATE C OINTMENT 20G can suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation.
SORVATE C OINTMENT 20G compromises of two medicines, namely Clobetasol (corticosteroid) and Calcitriol (Vitamin D3). Calcitorl works by minimizing the excessive production of skin cells that may build up and form scales on the skin. While Clobetasol is a corticosteroid medicine that restricts the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) responsible for red, swollen, itchy skin. It also suppresses the body's extreme immune response and calms the body to improve the itchy, scaly rash of skin.
SORVATE C OINTMENT 20G is available only for topical use in various forms including cream, ointment and shampoo. Your doctor will advise you which dosage form of clobetasol is suitable based on the infected place.
