Vitamins, Fat-Soluble

These agents regulate calcium-induced keratinocyte differentiation. Tacalcitol has been used, but it is not available in the United States.

Calcipotriene cream 0.005% (Dovonex, Calcitrene, Sorilux)

Calcipotriene cream 0.005% is a synthetic vitamin D-3 analog that regulates skin cell production and development. It is approved for the treatment of psoriasis and has been reported to be helpful in DSAP.
