Halcinonide Cream

People with certain skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis, may benefit from halcinonide (Halog®) cream. This prescription steroid medicine works to relieve itching and inflammation associated with these skin problems by suppressing an overactive immune system and reducing inflammation.
 
Your dose of halcinonide cream will depend on the type and severity of the condition being treated. In general, a thin layer of the cream is applied to the affected areas of the skin two to three times daily. Possible side effects may include skin dryness, irritation, and burning.
