Drugs Home > Fluticasone Propionate Ointment Information

Your healthcare provider may prescribe fluticasone propionate ointment (Cutivate Ointment®) if you have eczema, contact dermatitis, allergic dermatitis, or another skin condition that causes inflammation. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied to the affected area(s) twice daily. Do not cover the area with a bandage or other dressing, and do not apply more than your healthcare provider recommends.
 
Although most people have no problems with this medication, if you experience severe fluid retention, hallucinations, or extreme aggression while using fluticasone propionate ointment, inform your healthcare provider right away. These are signs of serious adverse reactions to the drug that need prompt medical care.
