What Is Noxipak?

Noxipak (fluocinolone acetonide and urea kit) is a combination of a corticosteroid and a keratolytic used to manage hypertrophic tissues, keloid tissues, dermatitis, and dermatoses.

What Are Side Effects of Noxipak?

Common side effects of Noxipak include:

Dosage for Noxipak

First apply fluocinolone acetonide 0.01% topical solution to the affected area, rub into skin until absorbed. Then apply urea 20% cream and rub into skin until completely absorbed. Apply twice a day or as directed by your physician. Cover the affected area with silicone tape at bedtime or as directed by your physician.

Noxipak In Children

Pediatric patients may demonstrate greater susceptibility to topical corticosteroid-induced HPA axis suppression and Cushing's syndrome than mature patients because of a larger skin surface area to body weight ratio.

Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, Cushing's syndrome, and intracranial hypertension have been reported in children receiving topical corticosteroids. Manifestations of adrenal suppression in children include linear growth retardation, delayed weight gain, low plasma cortisol levels, and absence of response to ACTH stimulation. Manifestations of intracranial hypertension include bulging fontanelles, headaches, and bilateral papilledema.

Administration of topical corticosteroids to children should be limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic regimen. Chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and development of children.
