The quality of the tube cap is terrible. I have used 2 tubes, both of the caps broken.

i originally got this from somebody in s.america...not sure if it was available here yet but eitherway it worked well...mainly on certain spots of the body (back,legs,elbows,ear,scalp)..ive tried this on the spots i get on my fingers and it doesnt do much but keeps it a lil lubed (probably the mineral oil)..best combo ive used has been dovonex for spot treatment,clobex/talconex for tuff spots

although effectual, because I also wash my hair daily, as the rinsed lotion has touched my face, over s period of days my face became very red and the skin peeled, and was very dry.

Dovenex for the scalp is somewhat effective but the Dovenex cream for other areas of the body are ineffective.

I have had psoriasis for 5 years now and when using this product it burned but it did work for a week or so and then winter hit and it flared up and it stopped working. I stopped using it.

I only have good things to say about Dovonex. I've only been using this a week and I'm very happy with the results I'm seeing. I'm an RN and I have Psoriasis on my elbows and knee. It hurts so bad in the winter when I wear long sleeves. I'm now looking forward to this winter.

I was diagnosed with psoriasis on my hands and this was the solution. So far it has just burned and I have developed an awful rash on my hands as well as arm, neck and face. Not too happy with it right now.

I have used this product on and off for three years. When used with topical steroids, it has helped to clear up significant outbreaks that other creams could not treat. The medication also seems to help keep flare ups at bay. It has never stung, even when used on broken skin.

I'm using it on my 9 Year old Granddaughter. The Dr. said when she's older she shoud start ging to a tanning bed. There has got to be a better way.

I have psoriasis on my knees and elbows. My doc prescribed this medication to me. He said it would get worse before it gets better. Well, it got worse and for two months now I've been waiting for the "better" to take affect. It's super easy to aply and I did not experience any discomfort. It just didn't work for me.
