Fexin Cream


Overview

Introduction of Fexin Cream

Fexin Cream belongs to a group of medicines called steroids. It is used for treatment of skin rashes and irritation associated with skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. It helps in preventing the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Fexin Cream is for external use only. Apply it evenly only to the affected areas of skin or as advised by the doctor. Skin irritation or burning sensation at the site of application is a common side effect of this medicine. However, it is mild and goes away quickly. Inform your doctor if it persists or worsens.

How to use Fexin Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Fexin Cream works

Fexin Cream is a steroid medicine. It works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers that make the skin red, swollen and itchy due to skin conditions such as atopic eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, and psoriasis.

FAQs

Q. Fluticasone is available in various forms such as nasal spray, cream, and lotion. Are they used for different purposes?

Yes, Fluticasone is available in various forms. Fluticasone relieves sneezing, runny, stuffy, or itchy nose, and itchy, watery eyes caused by allergies (allergy to pollen, mold, dust, or pets). On the other hand, Fluticasone cream treats many kinds of inflammatory skin diseases when applied to the skin. It can also be used to relieve inflamed skin, redness, and itching in several skin problems (like eczema, psoriasis, lichen planus, discoid lupus erythematosus, and allergic contact skin reaction).

Q. How does Fexin work?

Fexin is a corticosteroid, which works by decreasing the inflammation caused by allergies. It reduces inflammation by blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause allergic symptoms such as swelling, redness, and pain.

Q. My friend developed a severe allergic reaction when she started Fexin. Could it be due to Fexin even though it is used for allergy purpose?

In very rare cases, Fexin can cause serious allergic reactions such as rash, hives, breathing difficulty, swelling of the face, throat, and tongue. It may also cause low blood pressure which may further cause lightheadedness and the patient may even faint. If these symptoms occur, you should immediately contact your doctor because such allergic reactions can be life threatening.
