How Does It Work?Cordran SP Cream belongs to 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 and suppressing an overactive immune system.
