Reviews for Desonide topical
For Dermatitis "A very good cream. I was initially prescribed a corticosteroid for seborrhoeic dermatitis on my scrotum and ouch, which gave a horrible burning and itching sensation like never before in my life. I went back to the doctor and he prescribed me desonide. It didn't burn and results were almost overnight. It really is incredible. I struggled with dermatitis on the front part of my scalp, and he gave me a horrible smelling oil that I had to put on each night for two weeks, I got rid of it somewhat but never fully, a year and a half later and I'm fed up with putting that stuff on, so I just went ahead and put desonide on it, it works way better better than that oil! Desonide is simply awesome!"
DesOwen (desonide) for Eczema "This product works in a few days, is not visible on the skin and I found no side effects. I used it twice a day and the skin was clear in 3 days. I stopped using it then and was free of symptoms for several months. Once it started re-appearing I repeated the 3 day treatment. It comes in a 40 gram tube and lasts a long time. This was for facial treatment around the nose and above the eyebrows in the middle of the forehead."
Frequently asked questions
For Eczema "Was informed by my doctor, desonide thins the skin and to be careful. It was a frustrating process of a couple of months, several visits to the doctors office. Been using for 2+ years now, sparingly on my face (T zone), less than a dime size. Use daily moisturizer to spread evenly across my face. Found this was the best remedy to manage my eczema."
For Eczema "Top dermatologist prescribed this. Costs $120 for the tube. My 3.5 yr old daughter's skin was raw and inflamed on creases and on front and back of neck. One day (2x per day) of pea drop application on each spot and it was immediate. Less than 3 days and gone, skin perfect. so happy and relieved."
Are you taking this medicine?
For Psoriasis "Instructed by my dermatologist to use 2 x per day for up to two weeks. Worked beautifully until I discontinued using it. Not sure if that was her intention, to determine whether I needed a stronger dose or oral medicines for this problem. I am very happy with the results, as long as I can continue using it."
Desonate (desonide) for Eczema "It was the only one that worked for my three year old until my insurance decided not to pay for it any longer. I try the generic one but it did not have the same effect on her skin so I have to cough up 240 for it but it is so worth my baby sleeping at night with out the itch and her skin looks great."
For Dermatitis "Skin on my eyelids was persistently dry/peeling. Not painful or itchy, just an eyesore and gross. Tried lotions and oils, didn't help. Went to health center and was prescribed Desonide ointment, and within a couple days it was better. I have been applying about once every other day, and it has not come back. However, it was painfully expensive."
For Dermatitis "I have tried other methods for a year without much relief from dermitis on my face, specifically by my eyebrows and ears. Two weeks into using desonide cream and I have not had any itching, flaking or redness at all. Wow!"
For Eczema "This is my lifesaver. I've had the worst eczema I have ever seen, so bad that I missed many days of school from the pain and embarrassment. Tried other prescribed eczema products that only irritated until I found this. This was the only product that didn't irritate my eyes and instead helped by getting rid of all the dryness, scaliness, burning, inflammation in a matter of weeks."
For Psoriasis "My uncle and I both suffer from psoriasis- his is big, sand-dollar sized patches all over his body, and mine is on my eyelids, my scalp, my eyebrows, and has just now started appearing on my right arm. We were both prescribed desonate, which thankfully our insurance covers. After one day's use (2x day), my eyelids are perfectly healthy again, and the smaller patches on my uncle's legs are nearly gone. We had been searching for something- anything- that would work for us for a few years now, so we both feel like this simple ointment is a miracle cure. We have seen no side effects so far, and are beyond thrilled!!"
For Dermatitis "My dermatologist told me to use this right over Fluorouracil creme on my lip to relieve any painful symptoms. He didn't explain that the Desonate itself could cause painful side effects, like swelling redness, blisters, scaling, burning sensation, cracking of skin, thinning. It's water insoluble so it's difficult to wash off once it dries. This med should be used with extreme caution and stopped immediately once these symptoms appear."
For Atopic Dermatitis "I had rashes all over my forehead and two patches on both side of lips. Was first prescribed with Alclometasone which did not help. Went to see a different Dr. and received Desonide. The itchy and rash went away 80% first night, and almost gone by the third day. Awesome!"
For Dermatitis "I had a infection in the folds of my skin and was put on a drug . Doctor kept me on it as I said I am in pain its getting worse . It was the cream he gave me eating my skin I suffered so until I got a second opinion . He has put me on this for the inflation and thin skin . I feel much better so far I give this a thumbs up . Wish it was cheaper though ."
For Dermatitis "I had a rash mostly on my forehead and some around nose . It itched a little but was not going away. Finally went to dermatologist and she prescribed desonide to be applied twice a day, within 2 days I have noticed great improvement, rash is fading. Still don't know cause but am happy this is working!"
Verdeso (desonide) for Dermatitis "I have been using Verdeso in conjunction with another foam spray on my forehead, chin and cheeks. It made a huge impact on a red rush I had between my eye and my nose. It is almost gone by now, and I started the treatment less than two weeks ago. I would say that within a week or less one could see a major improvement in the way the skin looks. I use something else for the hands (a form of eczema) and its also amazing. "
For Eczema "I used many other products thinking that I could find a product with going to the doctor or spending money on creams. After weeks of continued disappointments I bit the bullet and went to the dr and was given Desonide 0.05% and within literally 2 days I noticed an difference. I’m at 1 week and 2 days and my eczema is gone. My problem area was right at the top of my breast/chest and it was very noticeable and embarrassing. I am so confident and happy now. The only downfall at first was the price. I have insurance but still had to pay $80. From my results it’s worth way more. You don’t have to use a lot so maybe get half of your script to make it more affordable. Hope this helps someone."
For Eczema "My daughter got eczema on her face at 10 months old. It was miss diagnosed until she was 12 months old. And by then she had huge basically open sores on 3 parts of her face. As soon as we were prescribed desonide her face cleared up within the week. And has stayed clear for over 6 months."
For Atopic Dermatitis "Instantly soothes and repairs irritated skin from allergies and dermatitis. Within a couple uses I can feel it heal well. I've been using it off and on for a few months now. It especially shines right now--I am having a very bad irritation (possibly allergic and can't contact my PA-C right now, weekends suck...) to a couple new acne gels I've been using for about a week and it cut down intense itching and the irritated feeling by 60% last night and was gone when I woke up. But the irritation came back, but it's much less now since I used the desonide last night. I keep using it every morning and night until a few days/a week after dermatitis completely clears. This stuff is amazing! Worth the money."
DesOwen (desonide) for Eczema "I'm from the Philippines and this cream has been recommended by the pediatrician of my 3 weeks old daughter who had skin allergy/eczema possibly of the mussels I ate and passed it on her through my breastmilk since I'm exclusively breastfeeding. After she took a bath, I applied a very small amount on the affected area (both arms) which she reacted a little bit to since this ointment can have a mild burning sensation, after a few minutes the oozing area was dry and the redness was fading.. I'm very glad this ointment is effective since its quite expensive."
Desonate (desonide) for Eczema "Didn’t work for my nummular eczema. Very pricey.. $800!! I wish there was a way I could return it and get my money back!! My biggest issue is that the doctor really pushed me to get this and said it’s the only prescription that will work quickly and provide results. Not the case with me. She didn’t mention that generics will not work the same. I am still battling the eczema, now on my face and legs.."
For Eczema "I've been using this small tube of a cream in which the active ingredient is Desonide 0.1 percent. It's called LOCAPRED 0.1 percent. I have a small amount of Eczema on my eyelids (and a bit between my nose and eyes.) If it gets flaky I put the cream for a week on the area (just a small amount). In 3 days of applying the symptoms don't show. I've tried many different creams such as sudocrem and 3 more, but this one was in the middle of not too weak, but for me I was able to use it frequently without irritation."
For Dermatitis "I love desonide cream. I use it for my seborrheic dermatitis on my eyelids. Any time I get red, peeling skin on my eyelids, I just rub some desonide on them, and within 6-8 hours my eyelids are completely clear and healthy again. No side effects whatsoever."
For Dermatitis "I have a condition where my scrotum itches like mad!! The more I scratch, the more I itch. Finally I went to my dermatologist and she said I have “itchy scrotum syndrome.” She told me if I scratch it very much, the skin will thicken. I told her I had to have some relief. So she prescribed Desonide Lotion, 0.05%. Well guess what? I got INSTANT RELIEF!! Whenever I have an outbreak (usually in the hot weather) I simply rub some Desonide Lotion on and just like that! Instant relief!! I hope you never get “Itchy Scrotum Syndrome,” but if you do, Desonide Lotion will fix you up! It’s only drawback is its price. If I didn’t have good medical insurance I’d be in trouble!"
For Dermatitis "This has been my silver bullet medication for dermatitis. I recently got a rash on my inside elbow. After the doc prescribed betamethasone, it got worse; so, a dermatologist prescribed triamcinolone acetonide. This didn't do much; but it went back to it's original redness (not bright red). After a few days of this & itching, I got fed up and pulled out an old prescription for Desonide gel. Even though my rash was a dry rash, I put it on and it helped finally! The rash went from red to pink. After the 2nd dose, it went from pink to skin color and the itching stopped. I used the other ointment to coddle it along until it was gone."

For Eczema "I am 34 and all of a sudden, I developed eczema around my eyes and mouth this summer. After trying all the over the counter products for a month, I tried desonide cream (0.05%), all the redness and scaly screen went away within a week. I have been using it for a week on my face and no side effects so far."
