Taclonex Ointment

There are several different types of psoriasis, a chronic skin disease. If you have plaque psoriasis, a form of the condition characterized by thickened, swollen, and red skin, your healthcare provider may recommend Taclonex® (calcipotriene/betamethasone dipropionate) ointment.
 
The ointment is applied to the affected areas once daily for up to four weeks. Do not apply it to more than 30 percent of the body. Rub in gently and completely, then wash your hands (unless you are treating your hands). This medication should not be applied to the face, underarms, or groin area. Itching, headache, and a scaly rash are some of the most common side effects of this product.
