What Is Fluocinolone Shampoo Used For?

Can Children Use It?

Fluocinolone shampoo is not specifically approved for use in children (anyone under the age of 18). As with all steroids, young children are more likely to absorb too much of this medication, perhaps leading to serious side effects.
 

Is Fluocinolone Shampoo Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than other than scalp seborrhea. This is known as an "off-label" use. Fluocinolone shampoo might be used on an off-label basis to treat scalp psoriasis or atopic dermatitis (eczema) of the scalp.
