Lorinden S is an external preparation with antimicrobial, antipruritic, anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Release form and composition
The drug is produced in the form of an ointment: oily, white with a gray or light yellow tint (in aluminum tubes of 15 g, in a cardboard box 1 tube and instructions for use of Lorinden C).
The composition of 100 mg ointment contains active substances:
- Flumethasone pivalate - 0.02 mg;
- Clioquinol - 3 mg.
Auxiliary components: white beeswax - 1 mg, petroleum jelly - up to 100 mg.
Lorinden S is a combined external preparation with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal effects.
Flumethasone is a synthetic bifluorinated glucocorticosteroid for external use. It has antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, vasoconstrictor and anti-edema effect. When applied externally, it prevents the regional accumulation of neutrophils, this helps to reduce the inflammatory exudate and production of lymphokines, slow down the processes of infiltration and granulation, and inhibit the migration of macrophages. Reduces the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which occurs due to inhibition of the activity of phospholipase A 2and reducing the release of arachidonic acid from the phospholipids of the cell membrane. It is an inhibitor of cellular kinins, which have proteolytic activity. It causes a reduction in the basic substance of connective tissue, helps to weaken exudative and proliferative reactions in the skin.
Clioquinol (iodochloroxyquinoline) is a derivative of 8-hydroxyquinolines. Shows activity against dermatophytes, yeast fungi (Trichophyton spp., Microsporum spp., Candida albicans) and gram-positive bacteria (Enterococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp.). Strengthens the antiexudative effect of flumethasone.
Due to the combined action of the two components, Lorinden C helps to suppress the development of inflammatory and allergic skin reactions, which are complicated by fungal and bacterial infections.
The ointment has a greasy base, which has a softening and water-repellent effect, forms a protective film that protects the skin from external moisture. Also, due to the peculiarities of the ointment base, Lorinden C can be used in patients with thinned and dry skin.
When applied to the skin, the active components of Lorinden C easily penetrate the stratum corneum.
Flumethasone is practically not absorbed into the bloodstream and has no systemic effect. The absorption of a substance increases in the following cases:
- Frequent use of Lorinden C and / or its application to large areas of the skin;
- Application in the area of skin folds, on the face, on areas of the skin with damaged epidermis;
- Application under an occlusive dressing, which contributes to an increase in humidity and local temperature (the penetration of flumethasone into the deep layers of the skin under the occlusive dressing is approximately 100 times greater than with a simple application of the ointment to the affected areas).
In children, absorption of flumethasone from the skin is more pronounced than in adults.
Flumethasone is practically not metabolized in the skin. Metabolism after absorption occurs mainly in the liver. It is excreted in the urine and bile in the form of metabolites and, in small quantities, as an unchanged substance.
Clioquinol can be slightly absorbed through the skin and bind to blood plasma proteins. It undergoes partial biotransformation in the liver and is excreted in the urine.

With prolonged therapy, the development of microflora resistance to the action of the active substance of the drug (clioquinol) is possible.
In cases of the development of secondary infections at the site of application of the drug, it is necessary to use agents with a more pronounced antifungal or antibacterial effect.

In case of fungal diseases with secondary allergic reactions, the ointment should be used under medical supervision in exceptional cases.
Application during pregnancy and lactation
