The use of a corticosteroid (eg flumethasone) in combination with antibacterial therapy produces faster results in the fight against bacterial infections. Initially used in the United States and France, this combination is widely used worldwide. Inflammation is known to be one of the animal organism’s defense means against infection. It is a defense action that tends to isolate or encapsulate the focus from the rest of the body.
Meanwhile, this process blocks the penetration of antibiotics into the infection area. Flumethasone reduces inflammation, thereby allowing antibiotics to reach the area of infection more quickly and effectively. With respect to hydrocortisone, it has a gluconeogenic action 700 times more powerful and an anti-inflammatory action 120 times more powerful.
Flucortan solution for injection is indicated as a basic or adjuvant treatment (associated with specific therapies) in all cases in which the body is subjected to a strong need, in inflammatory processes and in bacterial infections, such as:
a) Infections: As support therapy in pneumonia, metritis, mastitis, hemorrhagic septicemia, puerperal complications, peritonitis, mumps, rheumatic infections, pododermatitis and bacterial conditions in general, provided there is concomitant antibacterial therapy.
