Definitely the most effective of the topical steroids I've used. Most effective when dispensed directly to plaques and left in place until foam breaks down and absorbs (20-30 minutes). In my case this product was used in conjunction with X-Trac laser treatments.

This is the only thing that helps me from excessive hair loss to stop shading, however the bottle is complete crap! it works the first 2 or 3 sprays and then it stops working, eithe just liquid comes out instead of a foam and then nothing comes out. For the $250/bottle i expect the container be more user friendly. I get 2 times of use out of 50 ml bottle. That's ridicules! OLUX please fix the bottle!!!

I have been using this foam off and on for almost 10 years. It works great for me, but when I don't use it my scalp returns to the itchy flakiness. I use it only when I wash my hair which is every 1-2 weeks. My problem is only on my scalp. If I use the Olux I can go 2 weeks between washes. However, it doesn't "heal" over time it just clears the issue when you use it. I have think, heavy african american non chemically treated hair. I now live out of the country and I'm not able to get the Olux and I desperately need a generic substitute. would appreciate any recommendations that are not watery, or extremely greasy and that I don't have to apply daily.

I got prescribed this medication for my Eczema. It is apparently a promo medication, because I specifically asked for Desonide. Its extremely expensive compared to the medication I was used to using. And when I got it I didn't realize that it was foam, like hair moose. Its not as discrete as a regular ointment so that is annoying, but it seems to work. It stopped my eczema from itching and now its not swollen.

My dermmatologist insists that this stuff helps. First time I got Olux-E nozle broke. Later he wrote me rx to try it again. It was such a waste of money. It didnt do anything to help my condition.
