Pandel Side Effects Center

Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP

Pandel (hydrocortisone probutate cream) is a corticosteroid cream used to treat skin inflammations such as allergic reactions, eczema, or psoriasis. This medication is available in generic form. Common side effects include stinging, burning, irritation, dryness, or redness at the application site.

Apply Pandel to the affected area as a thin film 2 to 4 times daily, or as directed by your doctor. It is not likely other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on topically applied hydrocortisone, but many drugs can interact with each other. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you take. If you are pregnant, only take Pandel if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the fetus. It is not known whether Pandel passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Our Pandel (hydrocortisone probutate cream) 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.
