TOPICORT MILD CREAM (DESOXIMETASONE)

For the Reduction of Skin Irritation, Redness, and Itching

Topicort Mild Cream is a topical corticosteroid prescribed to relieve the itching, irritation, and inflammation caused my rashes, allergic skin reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. Due to the lower potency of Topicort Mild Cream, your doctor may recommend applying this formula as a maintenance treatment between flare-ups of eczema or psoriasis when symptoms are less irritating. You should not apply Topicort Mild Cream to areas with broken skin or a possible infection as the active ingredient (Desoximetasone) can be absorbed deeper and raise your risk of side effects.

When applied as directed, Desoximetasone is absorbed into your skin cells where it interacts with the cell’s nuclei DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) to produce proteins that will block the production of a chemical called arachidonic acid when your immune response is triggered. Topicort Mild Cream will also help to constrict blood vessels to reduce the blood flow to the affected area of skin. These actions reduce your inflammation, swelling, and itching as well as decrease the risk of scratching and causing a break in the skin or infection.

Suppression of the Immune System

Corticosteroids, including those applied topically, work by suppressing your immune system. This is why you should not use corticosteroids long-term as this can leave your body more vulnerable to infections if your immune system is not working at full capacity to fight off threats. Corticosteroids resemble your own cortisol that is produced naturally in your adrenal glands and has many functions in your body that protects your overall health and well being, including to help reduce inflammation.

By using a man-made corticosteroid, the production of your own cortisol will be decreased and if this natural hormone is suppressed for too long, it may not produce when or how it is intended to after you stop using corticosteroids.

Before Applying Topicort Mild Cream

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain Topicort Mild Cream is safe to apply. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx meds you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Topicort Mild Cream is the right product for you.

Advice for Using Topicort Mild Cream Safely

Do not stray from your doctor’s instructions on how much Topicort Mild Cream to apply and for how long.
