What is halcinonide topical?

Halcinonide is a topical steroid. It reduces or inhibits the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling.

Halcinonide is used to treat inflammation caused by a number of conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis.

Halcinonide topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about halcinonide topical?

Do not use plastic bandages, dressings, or diapers that do not allow air to circulate to the area (occlusive dressings) unless your doctor directs you to do so. The use of occlusive dressings can greatly increase the amount of drug the body absorbs. If you do use an occlusive dressing, do not use it for more than 12 hours a day.

Do not use halcinonide topical to treat any area of the body that it is not prescribed for. This could be dangerous.

Do not use halcinonide topical to treat a child, unless it is prescribed by a doctor for the child. Children are more sensitive to the effects of halcinonide topical.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using halcinonide topical?

Return to your doctor if the condition does not improve or if it gets worse. Halcinonide topical alone will not treat the condition if it is an infection.

Halcinonide topical is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether halcinonide topical will be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not use this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. If it is necessary to use halcinonide during pregnancy, the smallest amount possible should be applied, for the shortest time necessary to treat the condition, under the supervision of a doctor. It is not known whether halcinonide passes into breast milk. Do not use halcinonide topical without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Do not use halcinonide topical to treat a child, unless it is prescribed by a doctor for the child. Children are more sensitive to the effects of halcinonide topical.

How should I use halcinonide topical?

Apply the medication exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.

Wash your hands before and after each application, unless you are using halcinonide topical to treat a hand condition.

Apply a small amount to the affected area and rub it gently into the skin.

Use caution on areas where the skin creases, such as armpits, knees, and elbows. These areas may absorb more medication. Also, avoid the eyes, mouth, and mucous membranes.

If you need to protect the area, it can be covered with a breathable cotton-gauze dressing. Avoid using plastic, occlusive dressings that do not allow air to circulate to the area. Plastic pants and diapers may be harmful if used over halcinonide on a child.

Do not use halcinonide topical to treat any area of the body that it is not prescribed for. This could be dangerous.

It is important to use halcinonide topical regularly to get the most benefit.

Store halcinonide topical at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and apply the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use a double dose of this medication unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

What happens if I overdose?

An overdose of halcinonide topical is not likely to threaten life. If the medication is ingested, or if a large amount is used over a large area and side effects are being experienced, call an emergency room or a poison control center for advice.

What should I avoid while using halcinonide topical?

Do not use plastic bandages, dressings, or diapers that do not allow air to circulate to the area (occlusive dressings) unless your doctor directs you to do so. The use of occlusive dressings can greatly increase the amount of drug the body absorbs. If you do use an occlusive dressing, do not use it for more than 12 hours a day. Do not use other topical products on the treated area, unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

Halcinonide topical side effects

No serious systemic side effects are expected unless a large amount of halcinonide topical is used for a long period of time. If the drug is being absorbed by the body, you may experience blurred vision, halos around lights, an irregular heartbeat, insomnia, mood changes, weight gain, or fatigue. If you experience any unusual side effects, notify your doctor.

Less serious side effects are more likely to occur. You may experience some redness, blistering, burning, itching, or peeling. Continue to use halcinonide topical and talk to your doctor.

Other local side effects may also occur, especially with prolonged use of halcinonide topical. These may include thinning of the skin, prolonged redness, and stretch marks.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

What other drugs will affect halcinonide topical?
