Rx Only

Prescription medication requires an online medical consultation. If appropriate, a licensed physician will prescribe a prescription treatment as part of your personalized treatment plan.


Desonide 0.05% soothes swelling, redness, and discomfort by calming down the skin’s overactive immune response that leads to inflammation. It typically takes about 2 weeks to get symptoms under control, and some may start to feel relief after just a few applications.
