How to Apply Ointment
Apply the ointment to the psoriasis-affected regions of your skin. You can apply the ointment directly to your skin or dab it on your finger first.
Apply the ointment thickly (but do not exceed the suggested amount), then gently rub it in to cover the psoriasis.
After using the ointment, always wash your hands. If you're using it to treat your hands, only wash the unaffected skin.
If you're using other medications or moisturisers on the same area of skin, wait 30 minutes between applications to allow them to be absorbed and to avoid their mingling on the skin.
Calcipotriol, like all medications, can have negative effects in some people, although not everyone experiences them.
