Cutivate Topical Ointment
People who have certain inflammatory skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, or seborrhea, may be prescribed Cutivate Ointment® (fluticasone propionate ointment). This topical medication is applied to the affected area(s) of the skin twice daily for no more than four weeks.
When using Cutivate topically, the ointment is applied sparingly -- more is not necessarily better. In addition, do not apply a bandage or other dressing to the medication, as this increases the risk of side effects. Most people have no problems with this product, but adverse reactions can include burning, redness, or irritation.
