Mechanism of Work of Flucinolone Acetonide cream :

Fluocinolone Acetonide is a corticosteroid which corresponds to the cytosolic glucocorticoid receptor. Following binding the receptor the newly formed receptor-ligand complicated translocates itself to the cell nucleus, where it results in many glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) in the promoter region of the target genes. The DNA bound receptor subsequently interacts with all essential transcription factors, inducing the growth in expression of specific target genes. The anti-inflammatory action of corticosteroids are believed to include lipocortins, phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins that, through inhibition arachidonic acid, restrain the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Especially glucocorticoids cause lipocortin-1 (annexin-1) synthesis, which then binds to cell membranes preventing the phospholipase A2 from coming in contact with its substrate arachidonic acid. This leads to diminished eicosanoid production. Cyclooxygenase (both COX-1 and COX-2) expression can be suppressed, potentiating the result. In another words, the two major products in inflammation Prostaglandins and Leukotrienes are inhibited by the action of Glucocorticoids.

    My doctor originally prescribed it for my hair loss following dyeing my hair when I had seborrheic/psoriasis symptoms. It was really great because my hair did grow back in a few months. I have continued to use it for more than a decade. Now, however, it looks like my recently diagnosed lymphadenopathy is related to its use.

    I was suffering from rash for 10 months and this was the only thing that brought me relief. The relief was such that I overused it and unfortunately it thinned my skin considerable. I ended up finding out that was causing my rash was my blood pressure medication, so I am cured now and no longer need Fluocinolone. Would I use it again? Yes. Would I be more carefully? You bet it. way….way more careful.

    Keratosis: Having used this cream for 6 days I have 1 left and cannot wait to finish. Although the condition has improved following 3weeks using Efudex cream which caused a widespread rash I am told it could take up to two months to clear up. I have found that after four days I had diahorrea and feeling sick, I have also been feeling depressed and quite weepy over the last couple of days and lost my appetite.

    Exceptionally good product to relieve mild dermatitis symptoms. It has come in 2 part: a large bottle of liquid and a capsule of the active ingredient. If you are not going to use the product immediately, tell the pharmacist to NOT mix the products for you. The solution is good only for 3 months from the date of mixing.

    I use Synalar as the steroid to treat my LS. My GP prescribed this straight away after diagnosing my condition in 30 secs after an examination. Am very happy with results. Used after Epaderm emollient for washing, Synalar when required and barrier cream to help with symptoms. LS is controllable now
