Ages Eligible for Study:
6 Years to 17 Years (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Clinical diagnosis of psoriasis vulgaris involving the face
Clinical signs of psoriasis vulgaris on the trunk and/or on the limbs, or earlier diagnosed with psoriasis vulgaris on the trunk and/or limbs. The extent and severity of psoriasis vulgaris on trunk and/or limbs should be amenable to topical therapy with any of the allowed medications
An extent of psoriatic involvement of the face of at least 5 cm2 (the sum of all facial lesions)
Treatment areas (the face and the intertriginous areas) amenable to topical treatment with a maximum of 30 g (6 to 11 years) or 45 g (12 to 17 years) of ointment per week
Disease severity graded as mild, moderate or severe according to the investigator's global assessment of disease severity of the face
Aged 6 to 17 years
Systemic treatment with therapies other than biologicals with a potential effect on psoriasis vulgaris within the 4-week period prior to randomisation
Systemic treatment with biological therapies (marketed or not marketed) with a possible effect on psoriasis vulgaris within 4 weeks (etanercept), 2 months (adalimumab, alefacept, infliximab), 4 months (ustekinumab) or 4 weeks/5 half-lives (which-ever is longer) for experimental biological products prior to randomisation
PUVA therapy or Grenz ray therapy within the 4-week period prior to randomisation
UVB therapy within the 2-week period prior to randomisation
Topical treatment of psoriasis vulgaris lesions on the face or on the intertriginous areas within the 2-week period prior to randomisation
Topical treatment with very potent WHO group IV corticosteroids within the 2-week period prior to randomisation
Initiation of or expected changes to concomitant medication that may affect psoriasis vulgaris (e.g., beta blockers, anti-malaria drugs, lithium and ACE inhibitors) during the treatment phase of the study
Current diagnosis of erythrodermic, exfoliative or pustular psoriasis
