Full Prescribing Info
Action
Pharmacology: Pharmacodynamics/Pharmacokinetics: XORSONE cream contains betamethasone (as 17-valerate), an active corticosteroid with topical anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties.
Topical corticosteroid can be absorbed through skin. Skin with inflammation and /or other disease processes in the skin may increase percutaneous absorption. Occlusive dressings on the skin increase percutaneous absorption and substantially increase the percutaneous absorption of corticosteroid.
Topical corticosteriod follow the same pharmacokinetic pathways similar to systemically administered corticosteroid. Corticosteroid are bound to plasma proteins in varying degrees and are metabolised primarily by the liver and excreted by the kidneys.
