Life’s so good without psoriasis

Anyone dealing with psoriasis knows the challenge of managing it, how dramatically it affects your life when it’s out of control and the ups and downs of trial and error with treatment.  But don’t give up hope if you think you’ve tried everything to get it under control, there’s a simple treatment that sorts the body and the scalp¹. And, you only apply it once a day.¹

Most creams and ointments for psoriasis must be applied repeatedly, can be sticky or greasy and take a long time to dry. They can impact your busy mornings when trying to get ready, your laundry chores as they can mark your clothes and linen and your desire to keep up your treatment.

Even in between flare-ups, maintenance treatment is usually needed to keep the red, inflamed skin from coming back. Without it, in most cases it does come back – angry, itchy and difficult to cover up. So the endless cycle from clear and flair up continues.

If you’re familiar with this routine, there is hope. Did you know there’s a fully-funded treatment that could be different to anything you’ve tried before?

Daivobet® 50/500 gel is a simple way to treat psoriasis with faster, once daily application². When a flare-up happens, you only need to apply it once a day and most people see improvement in skin symptoms within two weeks².

Using the right amount of gel is important to helping you achieve clearer skin. Talk to your doctor about how much Daivobet® 50/500 gel you should use for your psoriasis.

Scalp psoriasis usually affects the back of the head, but can impact other parts of the scalp. It’s characterised by red thickened skin covered with thick silvery-white scales and can occur with any other form of psoriasis, but also in isolation.

Daivobet® 50/500 gel is especially useful on scalps³, as lotions and creams can be messy to apply on hair.
