ABSTRACT: This single-blind (blind evaluation) clinical study was undertaken to compare the efficacy and safety of betamethasone dipropionate plus salicylic acid (Diprosalic) ointment against the combined use of dexamethasone trimethyl acetate (0.1 percent) and salicyclic acid (4 percent) ointments in 110 patients with chronic steroid-responsive dermatoses like psoriasis or chronic eczema. Both the treatment regimens were effective and safe. Diprosalic ointment was found to be superior and relapse rate was significantly low .
