What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Follow the directions that come with your prescription. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

    Before applying Cutivate, clean the affected area(s) of the skin. Apply a thin layer of Cutivate to the affected area(s) of the skin every 12 to 24 hours. Gently rub in the medication. You should not bandage, wrap, or cover the area unless your doctor told you to. After each use, wash your hands unless you are using the medication to treat your hands. If your condition has not improved within two weeks, contact your doctor.

    Do not apply the medication to your face, groin, or underarms. Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth. Do not use it for diaper rash unless your doctor has directed you to do so.


    Fluticasone, a corticosteroid, is the active ingredient in Cutivate.


    • Do not use Cutivate if you have any of the following conditions:
      • An allergy to Cutivate 
      • An underlying infection
      • Skin breakdown
      • Perioral dermatitis
      • Rosacea
    • Do not use Cutivate in the eyes.


    • Before you start treatment with Cutivate, talk to your doctor about:
      • All the medications you use, including those used on the skin
      • Your allergies
      • Your health history and medical problems
      • Whether you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
      • Whether you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed
    • Do not use Cutivate ointment for atopic dermatitis.
    • Reversible suppression of the HPA axis can occur, leading to glucocorticoid insufficiency. You may be at greater risk if you apply Cutivate over a large surface area of the skin, use Cutivate long-term, use Cutivate under occlusion, apply Cutivate to broken skin, or if you have liver problems. Children are also at greater risk.
    • Cutivate contains imidurea which releases formaldehyde. This can cause a reaction upon contact in some people.
    • Cutivate can cause irritation, inflamed hair follicles, acneiform eruptions, lighter patches of skin, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, secondary infection, skin breakdown, stretch marks, excessive hair growth, and rash, especially if using high-potency or occlusive dressings. 

    Side Effects

    Side effects associated with Cutivate include itching, dryness, skin irritation, eczema, burning, "spider veins," and finger numbness. However, these are not the only side effects that can occur. 

    Call your doctor right away if you have side effects that are bothersome or won't go away.
