Taclonex Ointment is used to treat psoriasis. It helps to reduce the redness, thickening and scaling of the skin that occurs with this condition. Healthy skin lowers your risk for infection and protects you against the environment. This product contains two drugs. Betamethasone is a strong corticosteroid drug that decreases swelling, redness, and itching. Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D and works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches.
Use Taclonex Ointment exactly as it was prescribed for you. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.
