Product Overview

Derma-Smoothe/FS is an FDA-approved topical medication for treating redness, itching, swelling, or other discomfort caused by atopic dermatitis (a form of eczema) and scalp psoriasis. Its active ingredient is Fluocinolone Acetonide, a potent corticosteroid known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Fluocinolone Acetonide works by reducing inflammation, suppressing the immune response in the affected area, and alleviating symptoms associated with these skin conditions.

It is typically available as Derma Smoothe scalp or body oil in strength 0.01% Fluocinolone Acetonide. The dosage and application method may vary based on the stringency of the condition and the individual’s response to treatment. It is usually applied to the affected skin area 1-3 times daily, as directed by a healthcare professional. It is suitable for adults and children (4 weeks to 3 months). The dosage may need to be adjusted accordingly for pediatric patients. 

Common side effects generally include skin irritation, burning, itching, or dryness at the application site. Precautions should be taken to avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes, as this may cause irritation or other complications. In case of a missed dose, applying the medication as soon as possible is recommended unless it is almost time for the next scheduled dose. It should be kept at room temperature, distant from moisture and heat, and out of reach by children. It is important to follow all guidance the healthcare provider provides to ensure the safe and effective use of Derma Smoothe oil.

How Does Derma-Smoothe/FS Work?

Derma-Smoothe/FS contains Fluocinolone Acetonide, a corticosteroid that decreases inflammation, itching, and redness associated with various skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. When applied topically, Fluocinolone Acetonide penetrates the skin and binds to glucocorticoid receptors, leading to the inhibition of inflammatory mediators and the suppression of immune responses. This action helps to alleviate symptoms and promote the healing of affected skin areas, providing relief from discomfort and improving the skin’s overall condition.

  • Temporary alterations in skin color (lightening or darkening)

  • Vision changes if the medication comes into contact with the eyes
  • Signs of Cushing’s syndrome (such as weight gain, moon face, or increased thirst)

[Note: This list may not cover all possible Derma-Smoothe/FS side effects. Always consult with your healthcare giver for medical advice about side effects.]

Warnings

  • Topical Steroid Withdrawal: Prolonged use of Derma-Smoothe/FS, especially on large areas of the body or under occlusive dressings, may lead to topical steroid withdrawal syndrome upon discontinuation. Symptoms of withdrawal may include redness, burning, itching, and worsening of the skin condition. Gradual tapering of the oil under medical supervision is necessary to diminish the risk of withdrawal symptoms.
  • Systemic Effects: Topical corticosteroids, including Fluocinolone Acetonide in Derma-Smoothe/FS, can be absorbed through the skin sufficiently to produce systemic effects. This is more likely to occur with prolonged use, application to large areas of the body, or under occlusive dressings. Systemic effects may include adrenal suppression, Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glycosuria. Monitoring for systemic effects is important, especially in vulnerable populations such as children, pregnant women, and patients with certain medical conditions.
  • Skin Atrophy: Prolonged or excessive use of Derma-Smoothe/FS may lead to skin atrophy, characterized by skin thinning, telangiectasia, and striae. Avoid prolonged use or application to large body areas to minimize the risk of skin atrophy. If skin atrophy occurs, discontinue use and consult a healthcare provider.
  • Hypersensitivity Reactions: Allergic reactions, including contact dermatitis, may occur using Derma-Smoothe/FS. Discontinue using the oil and consult a healthcare provider if signs of an allergic reaction, such as redness, itching, or swelling, develop.
  • Ophthalmic Effects: Avoid contact of Derma-Smoothe/FS with the eyes, as it may cause irritation or exacerbate ocular conditions. In case of accidental exposure to the eyes, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical attention if irritation persists.
  • Infections: Topical corticosteroids may mask the symptoms of bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, leading to delayed diagnosis and treatment. Use caution in preexisting skin infections and monitor for signs of infection during treatment. If infection develops, discontinue Derma-Smoothe/FS and initiate appropriate therapy.
  • Pediatric Use: The safety and efficacy of Derma-Smoothe/FS in pediatric patients have not been established for prolonged use. Use in pediatric patients should be limited to the smallest effective amount and shortest duration possible to minimize the risk of systemic effects and growth suppression.
  • Use During Pregnancy and Lactation: Use of Derma-Smoothe/FS during pregnancy or lactation may pose risks to the fetus or nursing infant. Use only if the possible benefits outweigh the risks to the mother and fetus. Exercise caution and discuss with a healthcare provider before using Derma-Smoothe/FS during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Precautions

  • Avoid Excessive Use: You should use Derma-Smoothe/FS only as directed by your healthcare provider. Avoid using larger amounts or applying it more often than recommended, as this can increase the risk of systemic side effects and skin reactions.
  • Limit Duration of Use: You should use Derma-Smoothe/FS for the shortest duration necessary to control your symptoms. Prolonged use may lead to skin thinning, increased risk of systemic effects, and other adverse reactions.
  • Avoid Occlusive Dressings: Unless your healthcare provider recommends, avoid covering the treated area with occlusive dressings such as plastic wrap or tight clothing. Occlusive dressings can increase the absorption of the medication and may lead to systemic effects.
  • Use with Caution on Sensitive Areas: Take extra care when applying Derma-Smoothe/FS to sensitive areas of the body, such as the face, groin, and armpits. These areas may be more prone to skin thinning and other adverse reactions.
  • Monitor for Adverse Reactions: Keep an eye out for any signs of skin irritation, allergic reactions, or systemic effects while using Derma-Smoothe/FS. If you experience redness, itching, burning, or other such signs, discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider.
  • Avoid Getting It in Your Eyes and Mucous Membranes: Be careful to avoid getting Derma-Smoothe/FS in your eyes, mouth, or nose. If accidental contact occurs, rinse the affected area with water immediately and seek medical advice if irritation persists.
  • Inform Your Healthcare Provider: Make sure to tell your healthcare professional about any other drugs you are taking, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Some medications may interact with Derma-Smoothe/FS, potentially increasing the chances of side effects or reducing its effectiveness.
  • Keep Out of Reach of Children and Pets: Reserve Derma-Smoothe/FS away from children and pets. Accidental intake or misuse of the oil by children can lead to serious adverse effects.
  • Follow Usage Instructions Carefully: Adhere to the dosage and application guidelines given by your healthcare provider or as indicated on the medication label. Using Derma-Smoothe/FS correctly helps to ensure its effectiveness and diminish the risk of side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Derma-Smoothe/FS a steroid?

Derma-Smoothe/FS is a topical body oil used to treat atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema) and scalp psoriasis. It contains fluocinolone, which is a steroid. This medication reduces inflammation by affecting the actions of certain chemicals in the body.

How long does it take for Derma Smoothe oil to work?

Can I use Derma Smoothe oil on my face?

Derma Smoothe oil is primarily intended to treat atopic dermatitis (eczema) and scalp psoriasis. However, it is not recommended for use on the face.
