Pharmacological information of tazarotene gel

Tazarotene gel 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. Tazarotene gel relieves inflammation and redness of these scaly areas by slowing down the overgrowth of skin cells. It is also used to treat acne.
