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.

The directions that are provided with your prescription should be followed. Speak with your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.

Cleanse and dry the affected site(s) of the skin before applying Cutivate. A thin layer of Cutivate should be applied to the affected area(s) of the skin every 12 to 24 hours. The medication should be gently rubbed over the skin. Do not bandage, wrap, or cover the area unless directed by your doctor. Unless you are using Cutivate to treat your hands, wash your hands after each use. If within two weeks your condition has not subsided or improved, talk to your doctor.

Avoid application of Cutivate to your face, groin, or underarms. Keep the medication away from your eyes, nose, and mouth. Unless your doctor has told you to, you should not use the medication for diaper rash.


The active ingredient in Cutivate is fluticasone, a corticosteroid.


  • Avoid treatment with Cutivate if you have any of the following conditions:
    • A Cutivate allergy
    • An underlying infection
    • Skin breakdown
    • Perioral dermatitis
    • Rosacea
  • You should not use Cutivate in the eyes.


  • Before you beginning treatment with Cutivate, discuss with your doctor:
    • About all the medications you take, including those used on the skin
    • If you have any allergies
    • About your medical history and health concerns
    • If you are currently pregnant or plan to become pregnant
    • If you are currently breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed
  • Cutivate ointment should not be used for atopic dermatitis.
  • Reversible suppression of the HPA axis and resulting glucocorticoid insufficiency can occur. 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, you may be at greater risk. Children are also at an increased risk.
  • Imidurea, which releases formaldehyde, is contained in Cutivate. A reaction upon contact in some people can be caused by this.
  • 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, can be caused by Cutivate. 

Side Effects

Although these are not all possible side effects that can occur, itching, dryness, skin irritation, eczema, burning, "spider veins," and finger numbness are some side effects associated with the use of Cutivate. 

If you develop persistent or worrisome side effects, immediately call your doctor.
