Silkis ointment is a topical calcitriol medication. It belongs to a class of drugs known as Vitamin D analogues and is a reliable anti-psoriatic agent because it treats mild to moderate plaque-type psoriasis. It works by controlling excessive skin cell production.


Silkis is a white translucent ointment used topically for the treatment of psoriasis. It contains the active ingredient ‘Calcitriol’ 3 mcg. Calcitriol is a vitamin A derivative and is a very effective skin medicine for treating mild to moderate psoriasis.

Silkis ointment is used to treat mild to moderately severe plaque psoriasis. It is used when up to one-third of the body’s surface area is affected by psoriasis.

Silkis ointment contains 3 mcg of Calcitriol, which normalizes skin cells' growth and inhibits uncontrolled excessive cell production. The massive growth of skin cells causes thickening and scaling of skin in psoriasis. Calcitriol in Silkis ointment also reduces red, itchy, and scaly skin patches.

Silkis ointment reduces symptoms of psoriasis-like reddening and thickening of the skin. It also reduces itching and scaling of the skin. It effectively helps cure plaque psoriasis with two weeks of consistent use. It can be used when up to 35% of the total skin surface of the body is affected by psoriasis.

It would be best to avoid the use of Silkis ointment,

  • If you are allergic to calcitriol or any other ingredients of this medicine like white petrolatum, Vitamin E, and mineral oil.
  • If you are undergoing treatment for calcium deficiency
  • If you have any other major illness like kidney or liver disease
  • If you are suffering from calcium metabolism disorder and have high blood calcium levels

Silkis ointment contains 3 mcg of Calcitriol in 1 gram of ointment. It is recommended to use Silkis cream twice a day, in the morning and evening, before going to bed. You need to apply a very thin layer of ointment to the affected area. Do not use more than 30 gm of cream in a day. You will see improvement in the skin within 2-4 weeks of treatment. If you forget to use Silkis, do not use double quantity next time.
