Indications:

Superficial uninfected dermatoses are treated with corticosteroids (eczema, allergic and contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis, psoriasis). Continuation of treatment or maintenance therapy for dermatoses for which strong corticosteroids have been used in the past.

Contraindications:

Skin lesions (wounds) caused by bacterial infections (eg pyoderma, syphilitic or tuberculous lesions), viral infections (eg chickenpox, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, common wart, flat wart, genital warts, molluscum contagiosum) infections caused by fungi ; parasitic infections (eg scabies) ulcerative skin lesions; adverse reactions caused by GCS (for example, perioral dermatitis, striae) ichthyosis, juvenile plantar dermatosis, acne vulgaris, rosacea, fragility of skin vessels, skin atrophy; allergic reactions of hypersensitivity to the components of the drug or corticosteroids (the latter rarely occur) skin neoplasms.

Method of administration:

Apply Loсoid lipocream in a small amount to the skin 1-3 times a day. When the condition improves, as a rule, it is enough to use the drug once a day or 2-3 times a week. The total course dose should not exceed 30-60 g per week. To improve penetration, apply Locoid cream with a uniform thin layer on the affected skin with massaging movements. In the case of weeping skin lesions, it is sometimes not advisable to apply the cream under an occlusive dressing. The duration of the course of treatment is determined by the doctor.

Application features:
You should not apply the Loсoid lipocream on the eyelids due to the possibility of contact with the conjunctiva and an increased risk of developing common glaucoma or subcapsular cataracts. The skin of the face, genitals and scalp is most sensitive to GCS. Therefore, only weak corticosteroids can be used to treat lesions in these areas.
It should be borne in mind that when corticosteroids are used on large areas of the skin, especially with the use of a (cellophane) dressing or in the area of ​​folds, there is a possibility of increased absorption of the drug, which can lead to inhibition of adrenocortical function. Suppression of the adrenal cortex can develop rapidly in children. Growth hormone production may also be inhibited. In case long-term treatment is necessary, it is advisable to regularly monitor the child’s height and body weight, as well as determine the levels of cortisol in the blood plasma.
When conducting comparative studies, there were no significant differences in adrenocortical function in children in whom Loсoid lipocream or hydrocortisone 1% in an amount of 30-60 grams per week was used for 4 weeks. The use of the drug in the face, flexors and other areas of thin skin can lead to skin atrophy and increased absorption of the drug.
Topical corticosteroids can be hazardous to patients with psoriasis for a number of reasons, including “rebound syndrome” due to the development of tolerance, the risk of generalized pustular psoriasis, or local systemic toxicity due to impaired skin barrier function. Steroids can be used for scalp psoriasis or chronic scaly psoriasis of the hands and feet. It is important to closely monitor patients.
Overdose:
In case of chronic overdose or improper use, side effects may occur, described in the “Adverse Reactions” section. If symptoms of hypercortisolism are observed, treatment should be discontinued.

3 years.
