Final classification of the less-than-effective indications requires further investigation.

Apply to affected area 3-4 times daily in accordance with physician's directions or as directed otherwise by a physician.

What are the side effects of Alcortin A?

The following local adverse reactions are reported infrequently with topical corticosteroids. These reactions are listed in an approximate decreasing order of occurrence. Burning, itching, irritation, dryness, folliculitis, hypertrichosis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, maceration of the skin, secondary infections, skin atrophy, striae and miliaria.


What should I look out for while using Alcortin A?

Alcortin A is contraindicated in those patients with a history of hypersensitivity to hydrocortisone acetate, iodoquinol, aloe vera, glycine, histidine, lysine, palmitic acid or any other components of the preparation.

For external use only. Keep away from eyes. If irritation develops, the use of Alcortin A should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Staining of the skin, hair and fabrics may occur. Not intended for use on infants or under diapers or occlusive dressings. If extensive areas are treated or if the occlusive dressing technique is used, the possibility exists of increased systemic absorption of the corticosteroid, and suitable precautions should be taken. Children may absorb proportionally larger amounts of topical corticosteroids and thus be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. Parents of pediatric patients should be advised not to use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants on a child being treated in the diaper area, as these garments may constitute occlusive dressings. Iodoquinol may be absorbed through the skin and interfere with thyroid function tests. If such tests are contemplated, wait at least one month after discontinuance of therapy to perform these tests. The ferric chloride test for phenylketonuria (PKU) can yield a false positive result if iodoquinol is present in the diaper or urine. Prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms requiring appropriate therapy. Keep out of reach of children. Burning, itching, irritation and dryness have been reported infrequently following the use of topical corticosteroids.

Clinical Information

Clinical Pharmacology

Hydrocortisone Acetate has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties. While the mechanism of anti-inflammatory activity is unclear, there is evidence to suggest that a recognizable correlation exists between vasoconstrictor potency and therapeutic efficacy in humans. Iodoquinol has both antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
