OLUX: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Dermatological Disorders “Had flaking scalp for so long, noting helped, had to see dermatologist, she prescribed Olux, can’t believe it, but problem was gone after 3 applications! I wish I ask for help earlier!”

For Psoriasis “It’s a foam which I like, and it dries fast and clean. It’s a pretty strong steroid so it does work, but obviously you can’t stay on it forever. Within a week or two of using it, it will clear up your patches, but again as soon as you stop using it they will come back. I’ve got pretty good insurance, and it still cost me around $100 for a bottle. I recommend it for the really bad tricky spots, but don’t use for too long as it will scar your skin.”

For Psoriasis “I had psoriasis for 3 years before I tried Olux. At that time, I had a bald spot on my head and no skin on the back of my ears. (It was all raw and covered in pus). I used Olux for three days and my psoriasis cleared up for over a month. The only reason I stopped using it was my new insurance would not cover it. Olux is the ONLY medication that has helped me. I have tried a dozen other medicines and nothing has worked the same.”

For Psoriasis “Olux has been the only topical medication I’ve used that has been able to control the psoriasis on my scalp. Over the past few years, my condition has significantly worsened. However, since beginning to use Derma-Smoothe and Olux, I have been able to maintain a very healthy scalp. The Derma-Smoothe is fantastic for removing the initial buildup from psoriasis, while the Olux is a great for preventing its return. I only have to use Olux about once every 2 weeks, or at the first sign of any symptoms. Only downside is the high cost (since we have a high insurance deductible). However, I personally find it to be worth the money.”

For Dermatitis “I’ve always had dermatitis on my scalp and face, but the rashes on my body started out as allergic dermatitis after it reacted to an antibiotic called Vancomycin. But then even after all my antibiotics, the rashes kept getting worse and worse. I got a biopsy done, and the results were that I had psoriasis form of dermatitis, which is similar to psoriasis. At first the dermatologist prescribed Clobex, but it only worked on my arms. I still use the Clobex shampoo for my scalp. After that, the dermatologist told me to try Olux. I’ve been using Olux for a couple of weeks now, and my body is clearing up, especially my back and thighs.”
