Thanks for posting your query.

Diavonex contains calcipotriol.It is manufactured by Win Medicare. It is used in psoriasis, Seborrhea and related conditions.

Alternate Preparations are:

Brand name Company
PSOTRIOL [ Sysmed ]
HEXIMAR [ Shalaks ]

Please visit leading counter in the city preferably some big chain pharmacy which can help you with this.

I think you should get this. Still if you do not get it, then it is advisable that you consult a local dermatologist and take some alternative prescription.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
