Lidex-E Cream Description

Lidex-E Cream or generic Fluocinonide-E is a topical corticosteroid medication that is prescribed to treat the itching, swelling, and inflammation caused by psoriasis, eczema, and other skin dermatoses to provide relief. When your skin reacts to allergens or flare-ups from eczema or psoriasis, your immune system sounds the alarm and the next thing you know your skin has become red and inflamed and starts to itch. Unless you act quickly to suppress this reaction, you could cause a break in your skin from scratching the itch and an infection may result. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Decrease Symptoms of Skin Inflammation and Itching

As you apply Lidex-E Cream to the affected skin areas as directed, Fluocinonide-E is absorbed into your skin cells and inhibits the body chemicals that produce inflammatory substances, such as prostaglandins. By doing so, the increased blood flow and plasma proteins that have been sent to the area to start healing will be reduced. Although inflammation is part of the natural healing process, inflammation causes more inflammation. In essence, your immune system is calmed down so the symptoms will decrease and you have the relief you need.

Conditions Treated by Lidex-E Cream

Eczema could be caused by skin contact with soaps, perfumes, clothing, or certain metals that your body reacts to with inflammation and swelling as an allergic response. Smoke, chemical fumes, even a change in temperature outdoors can set it off.

Psoriasis indicates a malfunction in your immune system. For unknown reasons, it decides that your own skin cells are posing a threat and your skin cycle is affected. Your new skin cells are surfacing faster than the old skin cells can fall away or slough off which results in patches of built-up cells that itch and can look unsightly.

The ‘E’ in Lidex-E Cream indicates it has an emollient base. This is a mainstay for those that experience flare-ups from eczema and psoriasis as Lidex-E Cream works in several ways. It is a humectant that improves your skin’s ability to retain moisture on the outer layer, a lubricant to decrease friction if anything rubs against your skin, and as an occlusive agent that can slow down water loss by providing your skin surface a layer of oil.

Before Lidex-E Cream is Applied

Ask your doctor about any risks of using Lidex-E Cream while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list current OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Lidex-E Cream is the right medication for you.

Lidex-E Cream Precautions and Proper Use

Use Lidex-E Cream only for as long as your doctor has recommended as long-term use of corticosteroids can cause your skin to become thin and as it inhibits your immune system, you could find that you are more susceptible to infections. You should not cover or wrap the treated area unless instructed to by your doctor as this can increase your risk of more serious side effects. There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, only treatments to reduce the symptoms.
