Lidex Cream is used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, allergies, and rash.

The active ingredient in Lidex Cream is fluocinonide, which is a strong corticosteroid. Fluocinonide reduces the swelling, itching, and redness that can occur in these types of conditions.


  • Follow the prescription exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.
  • Clean and dry the affected area thoroughly before applying the cream.
  • Apply a thin layer of the cream and gently rub it in until evenly distributed.
  • Wash your hands immediately after applying the cream unless treating the hands.
  • Use the cream consistently at the same times each day.
  • Protect the treated areas from activities that may wash off the cream if treating the hands.

  • Do not use the cream if you have any infections or open wounds in the area to be treated unless advised by your doctor.
  • Do not discontinue use abruptly without consulting your healthcare provider.
