Drug Description


Cutivate Cream is a prescribed topical medication for the relief of inflammatory and pruritic symptoms associated with corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses (eczema, psoriasis, or rash). 

Classified as a medium-potency corticosteroid, Cutivate Cream exerts its therapeutic effect by stimulating natural skin substances to mitigate swelling, redness, and itching. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Cutivate Cream and with each prescription refill, thoroughly review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns. 

Cutivate Cream is intended for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes or mouth and refrain from swallowing the cream. 

Refrain from applying Cutivate Cream on the face, genital and rectal areas, as well as in skin creases and armpits, unless specifically directed by your doctor.  

Typically, this cream is applied to the affected skin once or twice a day as prescribed by the doctor. 

To properly use this cream, follow these steps: 

  1. Wash and dry hands before application 
  2. Clean and dry affected skin area 
  3. Apply a thin layer of cream and gently rub it in 
  4. Avoid bandaging, covering, or wrapping the area unless specifically instructed by your doctor. 
  5. Wash hands after use (unless treating hands) 

Use Cutivate Cream as directed for your specific condition. Avoid over-applying, frequent use, or extending use beyond the prescribed duration. These actions will not accelerate healing and may heighten the likelihood of adverse reactions. 

Inform your doctor if your condition fails to improve within two weeks or deteriorates.

Before starting treatment with Cutivate Cream, inform your doctor and pharmacist if you have any known hypersensitivities, especially to fluticasone and other medications. 

This cream may contain inactive components (e.g., formaldehyde) that may trigger allergic reactions or other complications. Consult your pharmacist for further information. 

To ensure Cutivate Cream is safe for you, disclose to your physician your medical background, specifically if you have a history of:

Topical medication like Cutivate Cream is unlikely to be impacted by other medicines. However, drug interactions may still occur. Inform all healthcare providers of any medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal products that you are taking. 

Inform your physician if you have a skin infection or if there is no improvement in your condition, as corticosteroids like this cream may exacerbate skin infections and complicate treatment. 

Long-term or extensive use of corticosteroids like Cutivate Cream may hinder your body’s ability to handle physical stress. Inform your doctor or dentist if you are taking or have taken this medication recently before undergoing surgery, emergency treatment, or experiencing a severe illness or injury. 

Regularly check your child’s height when using this cream for an extended period, as there is a slight chance of temporary growth slowdown. 

The use of Cutivate Cream during pregnancy is only recommended if the benefits outweigh the potential risks to the fetus. Discuss the risk and benefits with your doctor prior to usage. 

Consult with your doctor before breastfeeding since it is uncertain whether fluticasone transfers to breast milk.
