Cordran Lotion Side Effects Center

Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP

Cordran (flurandrenolide) is used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. It is a topical (for the skin) steroid. Common side effects include mild skin itching, burning, or dryness, thinning or softening of skin, skin rash or irritation around the mouth, swollen hair follicles, changes in color of treated skin, blisters, pimples, or crusting of treated skin, or stretch marks.

The recommended dose of Cordran is to apply a small quantity of lotion and rub gently into the affected area 2 or 3 times daily. It is not likely other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on topically applied Cordran. But many drugs can interact with each other. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Cordran should be used only if prescribed. It may be harmful to a fetus. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Our Cordran (flurandrenolide) Side Effects Drug Center provides a comprehensive view of available drug information on the potential side effects when taking this medication.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Cordran Lotion Overview - Patient Information: Side Effects

SIDE EFFECTS: Stinging, burning, itching, irritation, dryness, or redness of the skin may occur when first applied to the skin. This should disappear in a few days as your body adjusts to the medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Skin infections can become worse when using this medication. Notify your doctor promptly if redness, swelling or irritation does not improve.

Rarely, it is possible this medication will be absorbed from the skin into the bloodstream. This can lead to side effects of too much corticosteroid. These side effects are more likely in children, and in people who use this medication for a long time or over large areas of the skin. Tell your doctor right away if any of the following side effects occur: unusual/extreme tiredness, weight loss, headache, swelling ankles/feet, increased thirst/urination, vision problems.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
