Big Image
Generic Name: Flurandrenolide Cream and Ointment (flure-an-DREN-oh-lide)
Brand Name: Cordran SP and Cordran

Cordran Cream is used for:

Treating inflammation and itching due to certain skin conditions. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Cordran Cream is a topical adrenocortical steroid. It works by reducing skin inflammation (redness, swelling, itching, and irritation) by a way that is not clearly understood.

Do NOT use Cordran Cream if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Cordran Cream

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Cordran Cream:

Some medical conditions may interact with Cordran Cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines or other substances
  • if you have any kind of skin infection, cuts, scrapes, or lessened blood flow to your skin
  • if you have had a recent vaccination; have measles, tuberculosis (TB), chickenpox, or shingles; or have had a positive TB test
  • if you are taking prednisone or similar medicines

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Cordran Cream. Because little, if any, of Cordran Cream is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Cordran Cream may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Cordran Cream:

Use Cordran Cream as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • Apply a small amount of medicine to the affected area. Gently rub the medicine in until it is evenly distributed. Wash your hands after applying Cordran Cream, unless your hands are part of the treated area.
  • Do not bandage or cover the treated skin area unless directed by your doctor. If your doctor instructs you to bandage or cover the treated area, closely follow the instructions provided by your doctor or other health care provider.
  • If you miss a dose of Cordran Cream, apply it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Cordran Cream.

Important safety information:

  • Cordran Cream is for external use only. Do not get Cordran Cream in your eyes. If contact is made with the eyes, flush them immediately with tap water.
  • If Cordran Cream is applied to the diaper area, apply a very small amount and do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants.

  • Check with your doctor before having vaccinations while using Cordran Cream.
  • Do not use Cordran Cream for other skin conditions at a later time.
  • Cordran Cream contains a corticosteroid. Before you begin taking any new prescription or nonprescription medicine, read the ingredients to see if it also contains hydrocortisone or any other corticosteroid. If it does or if you are uncertain, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Corticosteroids medicines may affect the growth rate in CHILDREN and adolescents in some instances. Your child's growth may need to be checked regularly while using Cordran Cream.
  • PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: If you become pregnant, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Cordran Cream during pregnancy. It is unknown if Cordran Cream is excreted in breast milk after topical use. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you are taking Cordran Cream, check with your doctor or pharmacist to discuss the risks to your baby.

All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome:

Dryness; itching.

Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur:
