fluticasone cream / ointment Medication Information

Drug Information: Fluticasone is classified as a strong topical corticosteroid. Topical corticosteroids are the same as topical steroids. Topical steroids in addition to moisturizing (emollient) are used to treat inflammatory skin diseases such as eczema and dermatitis. Topical steroids are used when the symptoms of eczema or dermatitis recur. Fluticasone relieves inflammation, itching and redness, thereby reducing the recurrence of symptoms. Fluticasone cream / ointment is not a cure for the disease, but it will help relieve symptoms.

Different types of fluticasone (such as cream ointment) are available. A cream will be prescribed to moisturize the affected areas of your skin, and if your skin is dry, the ointment is a good choice for you.

Although fluticasone is not suitable for children, it is sometimes prescribed for short periods of time. For more information about fluticasone nasal spray and fluticasone spray, refer to the relevant link.
