Fluocinolone Oil Information

People who have scalp psoriasis or atopic dermatitis may benefit from using fluocinolone oil (Derma-Smoothe/FS®). It is available as a body oil or a scalp oil. The scalp oil is applied on the affected areas of the scalp at bedtime and left on overnight to treat scalp psoriasis in adults. The body oil is applied two to three times daily to treat atopic dermatitis in adults and children as young as three months old.
 
Although this prescription medicine may help improve these skin conditions, not everyone can use it. Information on fluocinolone oil should be discussed with your healthcare provider before starting treatment to minimize risks and to help ensure safe treatment. For example, you may not be able to use this medicine if you have certain allergies, if you are taking certain medications, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
 
Although most people tolerate this drug well, side effects are possible and can include burning, dryness, and itching. In most cases, reactions to the drug tend to be mild and easy to treat.
