Fluticasone propionate is a highly selective agonist at the glucocorticoid receptor with negligible activity at androgen , estrogen , or mineralocorticoid receptors , thereby producing anti-inflammatory and vasoconstriction effects. It has been shown to have a wide range of inhibitory effects on multiple cell types (. mast cell , eosinophil , neutrophil , macrophages , and lymphocytes ) and mediators (. histamine , eicosanoids , leukotrienes , and cytokines ) involved in inflammation . Fluticasone propionate is stated to exert a topical effect on the lungs without significant systemic effects at usual doses, due to its low systemic bioavailability .
Other Corticosteroid-Responsive Dermatoses: Apply a thin film of Fluticasone Propionate Cream to the affected skin areas twice daily. Rub in gently.
As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary.
Fluticasone Propionate Cream should not be used with occlusive dressings. Fluticasone Propionate Cream should not be applied in the diaper area, as diapers or plastic pants may constitute occlusive dressings.
