THIS IS THE BRAND MEDICATION
What Advantan® is used for
The active ingredient in Advantan® belongs to the group of medicines called corticosteroids. The corticosteroid in Advantan® is suitable to put on the skin. It is therefore called a topical corticosteroid, which is sometimes shortened to topical steroid.
When Advantan® is put on the skin, it relieves the redness, swelling, itching and irritation of the skin in eczema and psoriasis.

any medicine containing methylprednisolone aceponate

Some of the symptoms of an allergic reaction may include shortness of breath, wheezing or difficulty breathing; swelling of the face, lips, tongue or other parts of the body; rash, itching or hives on the skin.
Do not use Advantan® if in the area of skin you are treating:
