Elocon Information : This medication is a corticosteroid used to treat swelling, inflammation, and itching of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, allergies and other irritations. Corticosteroids for the skin are available in different strengths and forms (e.g., creams, ointments, lotions and gels). The type of medication used depends on the location of your condition and the type of skin problem being treated.
Creams are the most frequently used form. Lotions and gels may be better suited to hairy areas. Ointments may be better suited for dry areas and when a stronger effect or skin protection is desired.

Acne and excess hair growth may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor.
