What Is Flurandrenolide Lotion Used For?

Applying flurandrenolide lotion to affected areas of the skin can help relieve itching and inflammation caused by eczema, poison ivy, and a variety of other skin conditions. This lotion is a type of steroid, and works by reducing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system. Flurandrenolide lotion is meant for use in adults only, as children are at an increased risk for serious side effects.

An Overview of Uses for Flurandrenolide Lotion

Flurandrenolide lotion (Cordran® Lotion) is a prescription skin medication approved to treat inflammation and itching due to a wide variety of conditions. Some of these conditions include but are not limited to:
 
 
Specifically, flurandrenolide lotion is approved to treat any skin condition that is responsive to corticosteroids. As with other steroids, long-term use should typically be avoided, due to the risk of serious side effects; however, flurandrenolide lotion is a relatively mild steroid, compared with many other steroid medications.
 
As a lotion, this medication is easy to apply and is less likely to leave greasy stains on clothing (compared to ointments). For people who do not prefer lotions, Cordran SP Cream and Cordran Tape are also available.
 

How Does It Work?

Flurandrenolide lotion is part of a group of medications known as glucocorticoids, which 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. Flurandrenolide lotion works by decreasing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system.
