Cordran (flurandrenolide) is a topical (for the skin) steroid used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. Common side effects of Cordran include:

  • mild skin itching,
  • burning,
  • peeling, or
  • dryness,
  • thinning or softening of skin,
  • skin rash or irritation around the mouth,
  • swollen hair follicles,
  • redness or crusting around your hair follicles,
  • changes in color of treated skin,
  • blisters,
  • pimples, or
  • crusting of treated skin, or
  • stretch marks.

Tell your doctor if you have signs of absorbing Cordran topical through your skin, such as:

  • blurred vision, or
  • seeing halos around lights,
  • headache,
  • backache,
  • weakness,
  • confusion,
  • mood changes,
  • sleep problems (insomnia),
  • weight gain,
  • puffiness in your face,
  • muscle weakness,
  • feeling tired, or
  • high blood sugar (increased thirst, increased urination, hunger, dry mouth, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, blurred vision, weight loss).

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.
