Cordran SP Cream Dosage
When using Cordran SP Cream, apply a small dosage to the affected area two or three times a day. Only a thin layer is necessary. Extended use of this steroidal cream increases your risk of side effects, but it may be necessary in some cases. Ask your healthcare provider how long you should be using this product.
The standard recommended dose for Cordran® SP Cream (flurandrenolide cream) varies, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. As is the case with any medication, do not adjust your Cordran SP Cream dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
The standard recommended dosage of Cordran SP Cream for treating itching or inflammation due to a wide variety of skin conditions in adults, such as psoriasis, eczema, or allergic reactions, is a thin film applied to the affected area two to three times a day. More is not better; applying a larger dose than is recommended will increase the risk of side effects.
For particularly stubborn areas, your healthcare provider may recommend that you cover Cordran SP Cream with an occlusive dressing (a barrier that doesn't let moisture through). Your healthcare provider or pharmacist can help you find an appropriate occlusive dressing. Sometimes, simply using plastic wrap (such as Saran Wrap™) and tape will work.
Do not use a dressing unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so, as this increases the absorption of the drug, which increases the risk for serious Cordran SP Cream side effects.
Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Cordran SP Cream include the following:
- Ask your healthcare provider how long you should use this medication. In general, long-term use of steroids is avoided, due to the risk of serious side effects. However, the benefits of long-term use may outweigh the risks in some situations.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Cordran SP Cream dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
