Elocon Cream

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Elocon Cream is a type of medicine known as a topical steroid. It is used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rash. It helps reduce symptoms like swelling, itching and redness.

You should always use Elocon Cream exactly as your doctor has told you. It is only for use on the skin but do not use the cream or ointment on your face for more than recommended duration. Do not cover the area you have treated with a bandage or plaster unless your doctor tells you to. You should use this medicine regularly but do not apply large amounts or use it for longer than prescribed. It should be spread thinly. Tell your doctor if your condition doesn’t improve after 2 weeks of treatment.

Elocon Cream has a few potential side effects but not everyone will get them. These may include thinning or a change in colour of the skin, burning, stinging and itching. Serious allergic reaction to this drug are rare but let your doctor know if you’re bothered by side effects or they do not go away. Not all creams are likely to work for all skin conditions and may make some worse. Make sure you read the instructions that come with your medicine.

Let your doctor know about any medical issues you have such as thinning of skin, any skin infection, broken or ulcerated skin, diabetes and immune system problems and about other medicines you are taking (particularly steroids). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine.
