Cordran Tape (flurandrenolide) is a topical corticosteroid prescribed to treat a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash, to reduce the itching, redness, and swelling that may occur with these skin conditions. Cordran Tape is available in generic form. Side effects of Cordran Tape include application site skin reactions such as burning, itching, dryness, redness, irritation, peeling, changes in color of treated skin, thinning or softening of your skin, skin rash or irritation around your mouth, redness or crusting around your hair follicles, blisters, pimples, crusting of treated skin, or stretch marks.

Cordran tape contains 4 micrograms of flurandrenolide per square cm. Do not use Cordran tape on the underamrs, face, or groin unless directed to do so by your doctor. Wash and dry the hands before and after placing Cordron tape. Replacement of the tape every 12 hours produces the lowest incidence of adverse reactions. Drug interactions may occur with Cordran tape. Women who are pregnant should only use Cordran tape if the potential benefits outweight the potential risk to the fetus. Corticosteroids should not be used extensively in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Use in the pediatric population requires care as children adsorb more drug than adults; endocrine problems are possible serious side effects.
