Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Cordran SP Cream and Cordran Ointment (flurandrenolide) is a topical (for the skin) corticosteroid used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. Common side effects include stinging, burning, itching, irritation, dryness, or redness of the skin when first applied to the skin. This should disappear in a few days as your body adjusts to the medication.
For moist lesions, apply a small dose quantity of Cordran SP Cream and rub gently into the affected areas 2 or 3 times a day. For dry, scaly lesions, Cordran Ointment is applied as a thin film dose to affected areas 2 or 3 times daily. Cordran may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Cordran should be used only if prescribed. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk when applied to the skin. Similar medications pass into breast milk when taken by mouth. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
Our Cordran SP Cream and Cordran Ointment (flurandrenolide) Side Effects Drug Center provides a comprehensive view of available drug information on the potential side effects when taking this medication.
