Fluocinolone & Combined Preparations
Fluocinolone acetonide is a corticosteroid primarily used in dermatology to reduce skin inflammation and relieve itching. It is a synthetic hydrocortisone derivative. Fluocinolone acetonide was also found to strongly potentiate TGF-β-associated chondrogenesis of bone marrow mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells, by increasing the levels of collagen type II by more than 100 fold compared to the widely used dexamethasone.
A small quantity of Fluocinolone Acetonide is applied lightly up to 2 or 3 times a day, and massaged gently and thoroughly into the skin. These recommendations apply to both children and adults, including the elderly.
Primary infections of the skin and in rosacea, acne, perioral dermatitis, anogenital pruritis and napkin eruption. Also known hypersensitivity to neomycin
Side-effects are extremely rare, but as with all topical corticosteroids, patient may show hypersensitivity reaction.
Topical administration of corticosteroids to pregnant animals can cause abnormalities of fetal development, including cleft palate intrauterine growth retardation. There may be a small risk of such effects on the human fetus.

Appropriate anti-infective cover should be given if there is an associated infection. Long term continuous topical steroid therapy can produce atrophic skin changes. Do not apply to the face for prolonged periods. Prolonged use or treatment of extensive areas can produce adrenal suppression, especially in infants and children.
