What is alergical cream and what is it used for?
Alergical Crema is an anti-inflammatory drug (association of two corticosteroids) used on the skin to decrease inflammation, allergic reactions and reactions with excessive multiplication of skin cells (hyperproliferation). Therefore, it decreases redness (erythema), fluid accumulation (edema) and exudate in inflamed skin. It also relieves itching, burning or pain. Alergical Cream is indicated in the treatment of acute forms of:
- Exogenous eczema due to causes such as allergy to a substance that has come into contact with the skin (allergic contact dermatitis), to commonly used substances such as, for example, soap (irritant contact dermatitis), eczema with itchy rash on hands and feet (dyshydratic eczema) or eczema vulgaris.
- Eczema related to patient factors (endogenous eczema), such as atГіpical dermatitis or neurodermatitis.
- Skin rash with inflammation and scaling (seborrheic eczema).
- Psoriasis (excluding psoriasis with widespread plaques).
Before using allergical cream
Do not use Alergical Cream
- if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to betamethasone, fluocinolone, other corticosteroids or any of the other ingredients of Alergical Crema (see also section 6. Additional information).
- if you have tuberculosis, sГГyphilis, or virus infections (e.g. chickenpox or shingles)
- in areas of skin affected by red/pink inflammation on the face (rosacea), ulcers, acne or skin diseases with thinning of the skin (atrophy)
- in an inflammation of the skin around the mouth (perioral dermatitis)
- in areas of the skin showing a vaccination reaction, i.e. redness or inflammation after vaccination
- in the eyes, on mucous membranes (e.g. in the mouth) or in open wounds
- in children under 1 year of age.
- on skin infections caused by bacteria or fungi (unless additionally treated with a specific treatment).
Take special care with Alergical Cream
- If your doctor additionally diagnoses a bacterial or fungal infection; then you should also use the additional treatment prescribed for the infection because otherwise the infection may worsen.
- Alergical Crema should be used at the lowest possible dose, and only for the time strictly necessary to relieve the skin condition.
- Corticosteroid anti-inflammatory drugs have important effects on the body. Treatment should be avoided in large areas and for long periods of time, because this significantly increases the risk of adverse effects.
- Alergical Cream estГЎ contraindicated in children under 1 year of age and not estГЎ recommended for use in children under 12 years of age since in growing children and adolescents it is more likely that corticosteroids will pass into the body through the skin and have adverse effects in other areas of the body, such as interfering with their growth.
- Contact with eyes, mouth, open wounds or mucous membranes (e.g. genital area) should be avoided.
- Alergical Cream should not be applied to skin folds, such as the groin or armpits.
- If you have severely impaired circulation, you should not apply corticosteroids as skin ulceration may occur.
- Alergical Cream should not be used under materials impermeable to air and water, such as bandages, dressings or diapers, which are not very breathable.
- If you are being treated for psoriasis, special medical supervision is recommended.
- If you use Alergical Cream for conditions other than those for which it has been prescribed, it may mask the symptoms and make correct diagnosis and treatment difficult.
Use of other medications

Pregnancy and lactation
Consult your physician or pharmacist before using any medication. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding you should not use Alergical Crema unless your doctor considers it advisable.

Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Alergical Crema can produce adverse effects, although not all people suffer from them. The use of corticosteroid drugs on the skin may produce adverse effects, especially after prolonged application, on extensive areas, with bandages or occlusive materials and/or on children. The use of corticosteroids on the skin may cause the following adverse effects:
- Thinning of the skin (atrophy)
- Dryness or cracking of the skin
- Itching or burning
- Redness (erythema)
- Appearance of red spots
- Inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis)
- Skin striae
- Hair loss
- Hair growth
- allergic skin reaction (contact dermatitis)
- Specific inflammation of the skin around the upper lip and on the chin (perioral dermatitis)
- Changes in skin color
- Adverse effects may occur not only in the treated area, but also in completely different areas of the body. This occurs if the active substance passes into the body through the skin. Г‰sto, for example, may increase the pressure in the eye (glaucoma) or could produce a condition characterized by a rounded face, accumulation of fat, hump, weakness, etc. (Cushing’s syndrome); increased blood pressure, fluid retention (edema), osteoporosis, thyroid disorders, increased cholesterol, hyperglycemia, gastric ulcer, cataracts.
If you consider any of the side effects you experience to be serious or if you notice any side effects not mentioned in this leaflet, please inform your doctor or pharmacist.
