Fluocinolone acetonide is an effective synthetic GCS for external use. When used as an ointment at a concentration of 0.25 mg / g, it has a strong anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, antiallergic and vasoconstrictor effect. It has lipophilic properties and is easily absorbed through the skin. Already after applying 2 g of ointment, the production of ACTH (ACTH) by the pituitary gland may decrease as a result of inhibition of the adrenal gland-pituitary gland system.

Fluocinolone acetonide easily penetrates into the stratum corneum, where it gradually accumulates and is determined even 15 days after application. NOT metabolized in the skin. After absorption, it is systemically biotransformed mainly in the liver. It is excreted in the urine and in smaller quantities in the bile, mainly in the form of a compound with glucuronic acid, and also in small quantities unchanged.

The absorption of fluocinolone acetonide through the skin is enhanced when applied to the sensitive skin of the anatomical folds of the body and face, as well as to the skin with damaged epidermis or inflammation. The use of an occlusive dressing causes an increase in the temperature and humidity of the skin, which also leads to an increase in the absorption of fluocinolone acetonide. In addition, absorption is enhanced when the drug is used often and on large areas of the skin. Absorption through the skin is higher in adolescents than in adult patients.
