What is Dovonex Cream for?

Dovonex Cream is used on your skin to treat a certain type of psoriasis (plaque psoriasis). Psoriasis is when your skin cells are being produced too quickly. This causes scaling and redness. Dovonex Cream helps to bring this excessive production of your skin cells back to normal.



You may notice an improvement after

about 2 weeks of using the Cream.


Usually the scaling goes away quickly,

making your psoriasis patches seem flatter.


The redness of the skin usually

takes longer to improve.
