Fluticason or fluticasone propionate cream is referred to as Cutivate. Available in a generic form, Cutivate is a topical steroid cream to treat eczema as well as psoriasis and skin conditions brought on by an allergic reaction.
Many children and young adults feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of their face, arms, hands, or legs when eczema becomes part of their daily lives. Parents and caregivers seek the aid from medical professionals to search for answers to combat this condition. One direction that medical professionals point towards is using a topical cream to treat eczema. A topical cream is applied to the areas where eczema is prominent.
When a flare-up of eczema occurs, Cutivate can help soothe the inflamed skin and reduce the urge to itch or dig into the skin for relief. Cutivate is not prescribed for individuals who have an extreme case of acne, rosacea, chicken pox or viral infection such as herpes.
Although Cutivate may not pose a risk of developing an interaction with drugs or other topical applications, inform a medical professional about the medical or prescription history of the child or young adult such as over-the-counter products, herbal remedies, and vitamins.
Cutivate has been effective with alleviating the severe itching as it relates to eczema. This topical steroid does not cause drowsiness because this medication does not have an antihistamine included in the compound. When Cutivate is put on the skin, there is a minimal risk of the absorption into the bloodstream.
As with any medication, medical professionals warn patients about the dangers of developing a severe allergic reaction. Allergic reactions to medications include swelling of lips, face and mouth, break out of hives, and inability to breathe normally.
