Can I use desonide foam on any part of my body?

You should use desonide foam (Verdeso) only on the parts of your body affected with dermatitis (itchy, scaly skin). You can dispense the foam directly onto any area of your body except your face. If you need to use desonide foam on your face, dispense it into your hand first and then apply it to your face. Use only enough desonide foam to cover patches of affected skin with a thin layer of the medication. Make sure you don't get it in your eyes, nose, mouth or vagina. If you do, rinse it off right away.
