How flucort-n cream works
Flucort-N Cream is a combination of two medicines: Fluocinolone acetonide and Neomycin which treat skin infections. Fluocinolone acetonide is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Neomycin is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions.
