Diprosalic Ointment 30g – Diprosalic Ointment contains two active ingredients, betamethasone dipropionate and salicylicacid. Betamethasone dipropionate is one of a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. It is classified as a “potent corticosteroid”. These medicines are put on the surface of the skin to reduce the redness and itchiness caused by certain skin problems. Salicylic acid softens the top layer of scales on the surface of the skin, which are caused by your skin problem. This allows the betamethasone dipropionate to reach the diseased skin underneath to help heal it.

In adults and children, Diprosalic Ointment is used to treat skin conditions where the outer surface of the skin is covered by a layer of scales. Your ointment will remove the layer of scales and reduce the redness and itchiness caused by your skin problem.

Diprosalic Ointment 30g – Always use Diprosalic Ointment exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with yourdoctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Usual dosage:

Usually for adults and children, a thin layer of Diprosalic Ointment should be gently rubbed into the affected area of skin twice a day.

  • You should always follow these instructions when using Diprosalic Ointment:
  • Do not use the ointment on your face for more than 5 days.
  • Do not apply the ointment to children, on any part of their body, for more than 5 days.
  • Do not put the ointment under your child’s nappy, as this makes it easier for the drug (betamethasone dipropionate) to pass through the skin and possibly cause some unwanted effects.
  • Do not use a large amount of ointment on large areas of the body for a long time (for example every day for many weeks or months).
  • Avoid getting the ointment in your eyes.

If you use more Diprosalic Ointment than you should:

If you (or somebody else) accidentally swallows the ointment, it should not cause any problems. However, if you are worried, you should see your doctor. If you use the ointment more often than you should, or on large areas of your body, it can affect some of your hormones. In children this may affect their growth and development. It also may cause you to feel and/or be sick and to hear ringing in your ears. If you have not used the ointment as you were told to do and have used it too often and/or for a long time, you should tell your doctor.

If you forget to use Diprosalic Ointment:

If you forget to use your ointment at the right time, use it as soon as you remember, then carry on as before.

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Diprosalic Ointment 30g – Do not use Diprosalic Ointment:

  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to betamethsone dipropionate, salicylic acid or any of the other ingredients in Diprosalic Ointment. Please refer to section 6 for list of ingredients.

You should tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, before you start using Diprosalic Ointment.

Diprosalic Ointment 30g – Like all medicines, Diprosalic Ointment can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.


Most people find that when the ointment is used correctly, it does not cause any problems. However, if you use the ointment more often than you should, it can cause the following:

  • Thinning of the skin, stinging, blistering, peeling, swelling, itching, burning, skin rash, dryness of the skin and you may notice red marks. This can happen more easily in infants and children.
  • Inflammation of the hair follicles, excessive hair growth, reduced skin pigmentation and allergic skin reactions.
  • Dermatitis (skin inflammation), a condition brought on by the skin reacting to outside agent e.g. detergents, causing the skin to become red and itchy.

If any of the side effects get serious, if you are worried by these side effects or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell you doctor or pharmacist.

Diprosalic Ointment 30g is the only treatment that has noticeable results for me. It loosens white scalp flakes and cuts down markedly on itching.
