What is Elocon?

Elocon is a topical medication that can be used for the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is a moderately potent steroid cream that brings relief to affected areas of the body, not to be used on the face.

How does it work?

The medication contains an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid which causes a reduction in the production of red, itchy skin by narrowing the blood vessels and reducing the rate of growth of the skin cells. 

Is Elocon right for me?

Elocon will relieve the itching symptoms and leave the skin moisturised. If you suffer from dry skin conditions, ask your doctor if Elocon could be right for you.
