Neo-Synalar [neomycin sulfate 0.5% (0.35% neomycin base), fluocinolone acetonide 0.025%] Cream is a combination of an antibiotic and a corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses with secondary infection. Common side effects of Neo-Synalar include:

  • burning,
  • abnormal hair growth,
  • thinning and breakdown of the skin,
  • itching,
  • acne,
  • secondary infection,
  • irritation,
  • skin discoloration,
  • dry skin,
  • rash around the mouth,
  • stretch marks,
  • “hair bumps,”
  • allergic contact dermatitis and
  • rash.

Neo-Synalar cream is generally applied to the affected area as a thin film dose from two to four times daily depending on the severity of the condition. Neo-Synalar may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant before using Neo-Synalar. Corticosteroids such as Neo-Synalar should not be used extensively on pregnant patients, in large amounts, or for prolonged periods of time. It is unknown whether topical Neo-Synalar passes into breast milk. Systemically administered corticosteroids pass into breast milk in quantities unlikely to have a negative effect on the infant. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
