Pharmacological information Calcitriol ointment

Medication Information: Calcitriol ointment is used to treat plaque psoriasis - the most common type of psoriasis. In this disease, red scaly lesions called plaques form on a person's skin. The most common areas affected by these plaques are the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back. The size of the lesions varies from time to time and can be itchy. The goal of psoriasis treatment is to get rid of these plaques.

Psoriasis is caused by cells in the outer layer of the skin breaking down faster than normal. The disease causes old, dead skin cells to form on the surface of the skin, causing red scaly lesions. Calcitriol relieves inflammation and redness of these scaly areas by slowing down the overgrowth of skin cells. The capsule of this medicine is similar to vitamin D (essential vitamin for skin health); For more information about calcitriol capsules, you can refer to the relevant page.
