What is this medication?

CYCLOCORT (Amcinonide)
Corticosteroid Topical

CYCLOCORT (Amcinonide) is indicated for the treatment for inflammation and itching of the skin, caused by certain skin conditions, such psoriasis and eczema.

How does this medication work? 

Amcinonide is a highly potent corticosteroid that exhibits anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties.  CYCLOCORT (Amcinonide) suppresses the production and release of endogenous chemical mediators of inflammation (kinins, histamine, liposomal enzymes, prostaglandins) through the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins (lipocortins) and sequential inhibition of the release of arachidonic acid.

How should I take this medication? 

Topical: Apply a thin film and rub into the affected areas 2 to 3 times daily.

How to Take: Allow adequate time for absorption after each application before applying an emollient. Use for a maximum of 5 days on the face, scalp, and skin fold areas (e.g., armpit, groin) and a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks on the body.
