Desonide Gel Information

Desonide gel (Desonate®) is a prescription drug that can help treat the symptoms of atopic dermatitis. This skin condition is commonly referred to as "eczema" and is characterized by dry, itchy skin and rashes on certain parts of the body, such as inside the elbows or knees. This medication comes in the form of a skin gel. To use desonide gel, apply a thin film to the affected skin, making sure not to cover it with a bandage or dressing afterward.
 
Your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history before prescribing desonide gel. This includes any other medical conditions you have, such as any allergies, and any other medicines you are taking, including nonprescription products and herbal supplements. This will help your healthcare provider determine if this steroid medication is right for you.
