Cordran SP Cream Uses

Your healthcare provider may recommend using Cordran SP Cream if you are experiencing psoriasis, seborrhea, contact dermatitis, or other skin conditions that cause inflammation and itching. It works by suppressing an overactive immune system and reducing inflammation. Although it is a relatively mild steroid, this product should still be used cautiously and for no longer than necessary.

What Is Cordran SP Cream Used For?

Cordran® SP Cream (flurandrenolide cream) is a prescription skin medication used to treat inflammation and itching due to a wide variety of conditions. It is a topical steroid that comes in the form of a cream. For people who do not prefer creams, Cordran Lotion and Cordran Tape are also available.
 
Some of the conditions that Cordran SP Cream is useful for treating include but are not limited to:
 
Specifically, Cordran SP Cream is approved to treat any skin condition that is responsive to corticosteroids. This is a very broad indication. As with other steroids, long-term use should usually be avoided, due to the risk of serious side effects, although Cordran is a relatively mild steroid, compared to many others.
 

How Does This Medicine Work?

Cordran SP Cream is part of a group of medications known as glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids are a type of corticosteroid, or "steroid" for short. Although glucocorticoids have numerous effects in the body, they are used mostly for their anti-inflammatory or immune-suppressing properties. Cordran SP Cream works for most conditions by decreasing inflammation or suppressing an overactive immune system.
