INTRODUCTION

ATONIDE GEL contains Desonide which belongs to a group of medicines called Corticosteroids, which is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis in patients 3 months of age and older. This medicine works by activating the natural substances in the skin. Topical corticosteroids share anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties. It acts by the induction of lipocortins which controls the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation like prostaglandins and leukotrienes which inhibit the common precursor of inflammation mediators, arachidonic acid. 

Always use ATONIDE GEL exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Before using this medicine, tell your doctor, if you have or had any skin infections, pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers. It is not recommended for use in children less than 3 months of age. The common side effects are skin irritation, burning and redness. Avoid contact with the eyes.
