General Information
The active ingredient in Advantan belongs to the group of medicines called corticosteroids. The corticosteroid in Advantan is suitable to put on the skin. It is therefore called a "topical" corticosteroid, which is sometimes shortened to "topical steroid".
When Advantan is put on the skin, it relieves the redness, swelling, itching and irritation of the skin in eczema and psoriasis.

Advantan preparations are available only with a doctor's prescription.

Advantan is made up as four different preparations. Each has a distinct look and feel. They are:

ointment,
fatty ointment,
cream and
lotion.

The most solid is the fatty ointment; the most runny is the lotion. The ointment and cream are in-between in thickness.

Each preparation is especially suitable in consistency for a particular area of skin or skin condition needing treatment. Your doctor will prescribe the preparation most suitable for you.

The Advantan preparations are medicines and should only be used on skin affected by the conditions described below.

All four Advantan preparations treat eczema.

Advantan ointment, fatty ointment and cream (but NOT lotion) also treat psoriasis.

Eczema is a skin condition with redness, swelling, oozing of fluid, crusting and later scaling. It is often very itchy.

Psoriasis is a skin disorder with raised, rough, reddened areas covered with dry, fine, silvery scales.

Your doctor may have prescribed Advantan for another reason. Discuss this with him/her.

Advantan is not addictive. It is not expected to affect your ability to drive a car or operate machinery.
