Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Moderately Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Psoriasis
Dosage & duration:   .005% (dosage frequency: 1-2 times daily) for the period of 4 years
Other conditions:   None
Other drugs taken:   Clobetasol
Reported Results
Benefits:   Controlled the psoriasis, however did not reduce its presence.
Side effects:   a "halo" a few shades lighter than the natural skin tone was present around the site of application, which would last about 12-24 hours.
Comments:   I found this time-consuming to apply 1-2 times daily. Also, due to the "halo" effect, it was a little precarious to apply as well.
