Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion Description

If your current medication for treating eczema, psoriasis, or other forms of dermatitis is proving to be less than satisfactory, ask your doctor about Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion. This formula is especially easy to apply to your scalp or other hairy areas as emulsions are lighter than creams and lotions and are more like the consistency of a lightweight facial lotion. This makes it much easier to reach your scalp without the product becoming stuck on your hair. This also goes for hairy arms, necks, back, chest, and legs.

A Reduction of Inflammatory Chemicals Allows Symptom Relief

The active ingredient is Hydrocortisone Butyrate, a potent corticosteroid medication that will help reduce the painful inflammation, swelling, and itchiness that can be attributed to eczema and psoriasis. When applied as directed, the corticosteroid is absorbed through your skin cells and will work the same as your own cortisol produced by your adrenal glands. The production of inflammatory chemicals is inhibited by Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion so there is less redness and swelling as blood vessels contract and less white blood cells and prostaglandins are sent to the affected area.

Conditions Treated by Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion

Eczema is more of a collective name for several skin conditions, with atopic dermatitis being the most common. It can affect any area of your body and causes itching, inflammation, swelling, crusting, or blistering. Research is now pointing to an impaired skin barrier that allows toxins and antigens to more easily enter the penetrable skin and activate your body’s immune response.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that, for reasons unknown, trigger an immune response that causes your skin cell production to advance from cycling every 28 or 30 days to new cells forming every 3 to 6 days. This causes a build-up as the old skin cells have not had a chance to fall or slough off before new cells have surfaced.

Before Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion is Applied

Ask your doctor if Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion is safe to use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions or allergies to your doctor and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion is a good choice of topical medication for you.

Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion Precautions

Topical corticosteroids should only be used as a short-term treatment during flare-ups as over usage can cause a thinning of your skin or can interfere with your body’s own production of cortisol. Do not apply Hydrocortisone Butyrate to skin areas that may be infected until it has been treated and under control. Keep Locoid Crelo Topical Emulsion out of children’s reach and do not share this or other medications with others.
