Diprovate Plus Ointment Description:
Diprovate Plus Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Betamethasone Topical, Salicylic Acid and Zinc Oxide which treat eczema and psoriasis. Betamethasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Salicylic Acid is a keratolytic medicine which breaks down keratin clumps, removes dead skin cells and softens the skin. It also enhances the absorption of Betamethasone Topical into the skin. Zinc Oxide has astringent and antiseptic action.
Diprovate Plus Ointment is used in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
