Yes you can.-
Desoximetasone is a topical (for the skin) steroid. It reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling.
Desoximetasone topical is used treat to the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema(is a form of dermatitis or inflammation of the epidermis --- the outer layer of the skin), and psoriasis(is a skin condition where cells grow at a faster rate than they can be shed, causing excess skin to build up and form scaly patches on the body)..
Good luck and take care.-
