Lorinden A is an external preparation with keratolytic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Release form and composition
Lorinden A is produced in the form of an ointment for external use: oily, soft, white with a light yellow tint (in 15 g aluminum tubes, 1 tube in a cardboard box and instructions for use of Lorinden A).
The composition of 100 mg ointment contains active substances:
- Flumethasone pivalate - 0.02 mg;
- Salicylic acid - 3 mg
Auxiliary components: propylene glycol - 5 mg, lanolin - 5 mg, petroleum jelly - up to 100 mg.
Lorinden A is a combined external preparation with keratolytic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Flumethasone pivalate, which is part of the ointment, is a synthetic glucocorticosteroid. It has anti-edema, anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and anti-allergic effects.
The main effects of the substance:
- Inhibition of the activity of phospholipase A 2, as a result of which the synthesis of leukotrienes and prostaglandins is suppressed, inhibition of the release of inflammatory mediators is noted;
- Prevention of marginal accumulation of neutrophils, due to which inflammatory exudate, cytokine production and inhibition of macrophage migration are reduced, which leads to a decrease in infiltration and granulation processes;
- Promotion of inhibition of migration of lymphocytes and leukocytes to the inflammation focus;
- Reduction of hyperemia, manifestations of hypersensitivity reactions, proliferative and exudative processes that occur in the connective tissues in the focus of inflammation;
- Inhibition of the proteolytic activity of tissue kinins, inhibition of the growth of fibroblasts, inhibition of the development of connective tissue in the focus of inflammation.
Salicylic acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent. Its action is aimed at the penetration of flumethasone, which gives Lorinden A an additional moderate keratolytic, antiparakeratosis and local hypothermic properties, and promotes the penetration of flumethasone into the skin. Salicylic acid also suppresses the secretion of the sebaceous and sweat glands, has an antibacterial and fungicidal effect and helps to restore the protective function of the skin.
The absorption of flumethasone in children is higher than in adults. The absorption of the substance increases when applied under occlusive dressings, on the face, in the area of skin folds, on skin with damaged epidermis and skin that is affected by an inflammatory process, when applied to large areas (in this case, flumethasone can have a systemic effect).
Due to the external method of application and due to the keratolytic effect of salicylic acid, flumethasone easily penetrates into the upper layer of the epidermis through the keratinized layers of the skin, where the substance accumulates.
In the skin, flumethasone is practically not metabolized. After insignificant absorption into the systemic circulation, flumethasone is biotransformed in the liver.
Excretion is carried out with urine and, to a lesser extent, with bile in the form of compounds with glucuronic acid. A small amount of the substance is excreted unchanged.

Lorinden A, instructions for use: method and dosage
Lorinden A ointment is applied externally, applying a thin layer 2-3 times a day on the affected area. After the relief of acute inflammation, the frequency of application of the drug is reduced to 1-2 times a day.

Lorinden A can also be used as an occlusive dressing that is changed every 24 to 48 hours.
When treating lesions on fat-free and dry areas of the skin, which are characterized by severe lichenification, infiltration, desquamation and hyperkeratosis, as well as calcification, the degree of moisture can be adjusted using the thickness of the applied layer (individually, in accordance with therapeutic requirements).
- Local reactions: itching, burning, dry skin; with prolonged therapy - telangiectasia, skin atrophy, local hirsutism, perioral dermatitis, purpura, steroid acne, pigmentation disorders;
- Systemic reactions: with prolonged therapy, application to large areas of the skin and / or the use of occlusive dressings - side effects characteristic of glucocorticosteroid therapy; when applied to the skin of the eyelids (hereinafter, sometimes) - cataract or glaucoma.
Overdose is possible in case of prolonged use of Lorinden A on large areas of the skin.
