Dovobet Gel should be used exactly as your prescriber has instructed. The calcipotriol helps to reduce the rate at which your skin cells reproduce, and the betamethasone reduces the redness/inflammation.
The usual recommend dose is applying the gel once daily to the affected area(s) only. Treatment length is usually 4 weeks for scalp areas or 8 weeks for non-scalp areas.
Topical preparations which include calcipotriol should not exceed a maximum daily dose of 15g. Dovobet Gel should not be used on more than 30% of the body surface area.
All the affected areas of the scalp can be treated, and this would normally require between 1g to 4g of the gel. 4g is the equivalent to one teaspoon.
