I have used Dovobet ointment since 2011 and although it helps it can have bad side effects such as thinning of the skin with prolonged use. I have just googled this for you and read it shouldn't be used for longer than a 4 week period if prolonged use is needed you should take a 4 week break before proceeding with further applications. I am glad you asked this question as my GP has been giving me this medication on a repeat prescription without question. I am experiencing bleeding of the skin even when I just happen to scratch lightly with persistent itching. I have chronic Psoriasis and have had since I was 21yrs of age and am now 71yrs of age. What works for others doesn't necessarily work for everyone. I do hope you find some treatment that works for you. Oh and never use Dovobet on your face. Hope this helps. Nanny P

Yes but it does not seem to help and build up to a dull mess. Try the nizoral2 first. Or wash the divobet out with normal shampoo first then wash with the nizoral2

I use Daivobet 50/500 ointment and have used it on my elbows, arms, head and spots everywhere. I stopped using it about 3 months ago because I was going to a Greek Island? sun,sea etc thinking the Greek life was the cure. Whilst in Greece a local lady said you have Psoriasis why not try this Swiss medication; Daivobet. When I came back I have applied it each evening and three weeks later the patches are almost gone
