How Does It Work?

Fluocinolone oil is part of a group of medications known as corticosteroids, or steroids for short. It works by decreasing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system. Conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are thought to occur when the immune system has an overactive response to some kind of trigger, leading to symptoms such as redness, a rash, and itching. By suppressing the immune system and decreasing inflammation, fluocinolone oil can reduce the symptoms of these conditions.
