The active constituent in Desowen is Desonide which is a chemically modified hydrocortisone. Desonide provides relief from symptoms such as irritation, inflammation, swelling, red skin and itchiness. Desonide binds to cytosolic glucocorticoid receptor and the complex formed binds to the genetic element on the DNA. The complex formed represses and activates various genes. Desonide like other corticosteroid may act by induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins. These proteins control the biosynthesis of prostaglandins which are potent mediators of inflammation and leukotrienes. Desonide on binding with glucocorticoid receptor results in decrease release of leukocyte acid hydrolases and inhibition of histamine and kinin release.
