combined preparation for external use. Flumethasone is a fluorinated cortisone derivative with a pronounced anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and antiexedative action. The drug eliminates or reduces the severity of the inflammatory process in the skin. The salicylic acid contained in the preparation has a keratolytic and emollient effect, promoting the penetration of flumethasone into the skin, as well as a weak antiseptic effect. Flumethasone pivalate penetrates well into the skin through the horny layer of the epidermis. After systemic resorption, it is metabolized in the liver, excreted in the urine in the form of glucuronic conjugates and unchanged. Salicylic acid is not practically absorbed when applied topically, however it facilitates the penetration of flumethasone pivalate through the keratinized epidermis
