What is this medicine?

FLURANDRENOLIDE (flure an DREN oh lide) is a corticosteroid. It is used on the skin to reduce swelling, redness, itching, and allergic reactions.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?

They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
  • any active infection
  • diabetes
  • large areas of burned or damaged skin
  • peripheral vascular disease
  • skin wasting or thinning
  • an unusual or allergic reaction to flurandrenolide, corticosteroids, other medicines, foods, dyes, or preservatives

  • breast- feeding

How should I use this medicine?

This medicine is for external use only. Do not take by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Using a gloved hand, (or wash hands thoroughly and dry completely if no glove is used), apply a thin film of the medicine to the affected area as directed by your doctor or health care professional. Rub in gently. Do not cover with a bandage or dressing or use on the face, underarms, or groin areas unless your doctor or health care professional tells you to. Do not use on healthy skin or over large areas of skin. Do not get this medicine in your eyes. If you do, rinse out with plenty of cool tap water. It is important not to use more medicine than prescribed. Do not use your medicine more often than directed.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this drug may be prescribed for selected conditions, precautions do apply. If applying this medicine to the diaper area of a child, do not cover with tight- fitting diapers or plastic pants. This may increase the amount of medicine that passes through the skin and increase the risk of serious side effects.

Elderly patients are more likely to have damaged skin through aging, and this may increase side effects. This medicine should only be used for brief periods and infrequently in older patients.
