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. It works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. This product should not be used if you have certain types of psoriasis (skin patches with pus-filled blisters, psoriasis over most of your body with intense redness/shedding/oozing). Consult your doctor for more information.
