Once daily application of diflorasone diacetate ointment compared with betamethasone valerate ointment twice daily in patients with eczematous dermatoses.

The clinical efficacy of 0.05% diflorasone diacetate applied once daily, for eczematous dermatoses, was compared with the twice daily application of betamethasone valerate. Both agents were supplied as ointments. Sixty patients were randomized to one of the two treatment regimens. The investigators were unaware of the regimen used. Evaluations were made at 1 and at 3 weeks. There were no statistically significant differences in eight parameters studied at any time during the study. No side-effects were reported.
