What is Dovonex Ointment?

Dovonex Ointment is used in the treatment of plaque psoriasis, a skin condition that causes itchy, scaly plaques to form on the skin. The ointment contains the vitamin D derivative calcipotriol, which normalises skin cell production and treats the condition.

This ointment is only available on prescription from your doctor and cannot be bought online or over the counter.

How does Dovonex Ointment work?

Psoriasis is an itchy, scaly skin condition caused by the excess production of skin cells in the outer layer of the skin. This leads to raised red, scaly plaques that can develop on the elbows, knees, scalp and back. Sometimes, the face can also be affected.

Vitamin D is an essential ingredient for healthy skin. Dovonex Ointment contains calcipotriol, a vitamin D derivative that helps to promote the normal growth of skin cells, clearing plaques and providing relief from itching and redness.

The cream can take some time to bring noticeable improvements in the skin, with a maximum recommended treatment time of 12 weeks.

Dovonex Ointment may be prescribed in combination with a steroid medicine called betamethasone (Dovobet), which can provide relief from itchy plaques, redness and inflammation.

How to use Dovonex Ointment

  • Break the seal of the tube using the point on the cap
  • Apply the ointment once or twice a day to the affected area(s) as directed by your doctor
  • If using the medicine twice daily, apply it morning and evening
  • Squeeze the ointment directly onto your skin or a clean finger
  • Always wash your hands after using Dovonex Ointment
  • If using a moisturiser, wait for it to be absorbed before applying Dovonex Ointment
  • Your doctor will tell you how much ointment to use for children under the age of 18

What are the side effects of Dovonex Ointment?

Skin irritation is the most commonly reported side effect of Dovonex. Other side effects include: contact dermatitis; redness and itching skin; rash; or, aggravation of your psoriasis.

Less common side effects include: photosensitivity (abnormal skin reaction to light); hives; eczema; or, facial swelling.

If you are concerned about these or any other side effects, speak to your doctor.

What are the precautions/interactions of Dovonex Ointment?

You should always tell your doctor about any other medicines or topical preparations you are using before using Dovonex Ointment. This includes over-the-counter medicines and herbal remedies.

If you are applying moisturisers or other medicines to the skin, it's best to wait a few minutes between each application to ensure the products are adequately absorbed and do not mix on the skin.

Your skin may be more sensitive to UV light whilst using Dovonex Ointment, therefore it is recommended that you avoid or limit your exposure to the sun's rays or sunlamps while using this medicine.

If you have pustular or erythrodermic exfoliative psoriasis, do not use this medicine.

Dovonex Ointment should not be used in people who have severe kidney or liver disease, or disorders of calcium metabolism.

This ointment must not be used on the face, as calcipotriol may cause irritation.

Dovonex is suitable for use in adults and children over the age of 6 years. There is limited information available regarding safety of use in children under 6 years of age.

As it is not known whether calcipotriol passes into breast milk, Dovonex Ointment should be used with caution if you are breastfeeding. Use it only on the advice of your doctor and do not apply the ointment directly to the breasts.

Pregnant women should avoid using Dovonex Ointment unless your doctor considers it necessary, as the safety of this medicine for use in pregnancy has not been established.

Do not use Dovonex Ointment if you are allergic to calcipotriol or any of the medicine's other ingredients. If you experience an allergic reaction, stop using the medicine and contact your doctor.
