By suppressing the immune system and reducing inflammation, Halog® (halcinonide) can help treat skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. As a topical medicine, Halog cream is applied directly on the affected areas of the skin two to three times daily. Your dosage will depend on the type and severity of the condition being treated.
Dryness, burning, and other skin irritations are some of the possible side effects of this medication. Halog cream may not be suitable for people who are taking certain medications or who have certain allergies. Also, it is important to tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before starting treatment.
It is not usually recommended to use this medicine for prolonged periods, as it may lead to serious problems like diabetes or Cushing's syndrome. Because it is a type of steroid, Halog cream may also suppress the body's ability to produce its own natural steroids.
