Glucocorticosteroid for topical application
Glucocorticosteroid for external use from mild to moderate activity. Has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive effect. The mechanism of anti-inflammatory action is completely unclear. It is believed that alclomethasone induces the synthesis of phospholipase A2 inhibitors (lipocortins). As a result, the release of arachidonic acid from phospholipid membranes is reduced. This leads to inhibition of the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes (inflammatory mediators) from arachidonic acid.
Absorption through the skin depends on a number of factors (including the form of the dosage form and the integrity of the skin). Inflammatory and other skin diseases can increase absorption. In healthy volunteers, within 3 hours, 3% of the alklomethasone is absorbed.
Indications for use
Dermatoses and inflammatory skin diseases that react to topical therapy with glucocorticosteroid drugs (including eczema, atopic dermatitis, allergic and contact dermatitis, including phytodermatitis, psoriasis, photodermatitis and sunburn, allergic reactions to insect bites).
Afloderm ointment is intended for the treatment of chronic and subacute dermatoses, especially with dry and flaky lesions, with infiltration, or in cases where the occlusive effect of the ointment is necessary.
Contraindications for Afloderm ointment
Hypersensitivity to alclomethasone or to any of the auxiliary components of the drug; skin tuberculosis, cutaneous manifestations of syphilis, chickenpox, viral skin infections, skin post-vaccination reactions, open wounds, trophic ulcers, rosacea, acne vulgaris; children's age (up to 6 months).
Application in pregnancy and during breastfeeding
The use of the drug Afloderm ointment in pregnant women is allowed. In these cases, the application should be under the supervision of a doctor, be short and limited to small areas of the skin. Data on the teratogenic effect are absent.
It is possible to use the drug Afloderm ointment in nursing mothers. It is necessary to observe precautions when using the drug in nursing mothers, in particular, the drug should not be applied to the skin of the breast before feeding.
Dosing and Administration
For external use only.
Afloderm ointment is applied evenly on the affected skin 2-3 times a day. At children and in the period of aftercare it is possible to use the drug once a day. To prevent relapse in the treatment of chronic diseases, therapy should continue for some time after the disappearance of all symptoms. The drug Afloderm can be used in children from the sixth month of life. It should be borne in mind that in young children, skin folds and synthetic diapers can have an effect similar to the effect of an occlusive dressing and increase the resorption of the active substance of the drug. In addition, children can have a greater degree of systemic resorption due to the relationship between skin surface and body weight, and also due to insufficient maturation of the skin. It is not recommended to apply under occlusive dressings, in places of contact of diapers and diapers with a skin. The maximum duration of treatment in children is 3 weeks. Longer use of the drug should be done only under the supervision of a doctor. If there is no effect within 2 weeks, the diagnosis should be clarified. With common dermatoses, along with the use of Afloderm ointment, it is advisable to switch to the use of the drug Afloderm in the form of a cream for the therapy of dermatoses localized in delicate and sensitive areas of the skin (on the face, neck, chest, genital area). In addition, the cream Afloderm has cosmetic advantages - it is easily absorbed and does not leave a greasy shine.
