Does Corticosteroids (i.e. Elocon) show up in a blood test?
I have a prescription (Elocon) and I apply the cream once in awhile and am wondering if it will show up in a blood/drug test? If so, how long will it take to get it out of my system? Thanks Asked by Joleen Iacovino 2 years ago.

Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids are to different drugs. It should effect a drug test for anabolic steroids. but corticosteroids,which is what you have are not tested for. I would mention it to the drug tester, a lot of people are on corticosteroids for a lot of reasons. Asthma, allergies, as a joint anti-inflammatory etc. which is all different from trying to grow muscle mass by using anabolic steroids, good luck on your test. Answered by Parker Bostow 2 years ago.

Corticosteroids are not screened for on routine drug tests. Corticosteroids are naturally in your system and vary considerably dependent on the time of day and stress levels in your system. Though cortisol can be measured in your blood and the indirect effects of exogenous steroids (i.e. corticosteroids from sources outside your body... pills, creams, etc) can be measured, there is no direct measure available for levels of exogenous corticosteroids that you may be exposed.

Foreskin stretching and Elocon steroid cream?
ok after much of the input i received on here i am going to try stretching. first a lil background.I have for the past 4 months had what i think is a yeast infection, i have tried lotrimin which helps but has not knocked out the infection, i use Qtips to clean out under the foreskin and pull out this slightly... Asked by Marvel Mathiason 2 years ago.

ok after much of the input i received on here i am going to try stretching. first a lil background. I have for the past 4 months had what i think is a yeast infection, i have tried lotrimin which helps but has not knocked out the infection, i use Qtips to clean out under the foreskin and pull out this slightly yellowish cheezy substance,after i clean this out i use another qtip with peroxide to make sure i have it clean then apply the lotrimin. My inside foreskin is extremly itchy at times and has developed extreme phimosis as a result. I have diabetis as well which does not help with the yeast. I have in my medicine cabinit a full tube of Elocon (mometasone furoate cream 1%) will this cream help loosen the foreskin over some time along with stretching? I believe if i can get the foreskin over the head it will be able to stay nice and dry and with continued application of the lptrimin i can get rid of the yeast infection easier. can someone provide me their thoughts on my reasoning? Answered by Kirstin Booze 2 years ago.

I do not know your history, but is sounds as though you have got a tight foreskin. If this is the case, then you do not have to do anything about it. It is quite normal and fairly common. Just learn how you should live with it, dont wreck it or yourself in the process. Do not use the Elcon crean for stretching. It is a foolish notion to try and stretch your foreskin in any case, but even more so to try and use something which is not designed for that. I am quoting here from Netdoctor: Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema. When mometasone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch. Mometasone is a potent corticosteroid that is applied to the skin to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders, such as dermatitis and psoriasis that have not responded to milder steroids. It is not going to do your diabetes any good to stuff it up with this medication. Answered by Timmy Hestand 2 years ago.

It may be a yeast infection, but it could also be something called smegma (see link 1). And smegma is pretty harmless and easily cleaned. Using peroxide under the foreskin is a BAD IDEA. It can actually make yeast infections more likely to happen as it kills all the good microbes that would otherwise keep yeast infections at bay. If you're worried about a yeast infection, drink cranberry juice and eat yogurt. It does, surprisingly, help a bit. And if you're really worried, then ask your doctor about an antifungal cream or oral medication. I'm not sure that Elocon will help loosen your foreskin. There are indeed prescription creams (link 2) that can help, but again, you'll have to see your doctor for that. See the remaining links for useful info on stretching exercises and other ways to loosen your foreskin. Answered by Joanne Pazo 2 years ago.

Cream may work but slowly.Phimosis should be cure as earlier as possible during childhood by stretching the tight foreskin with some effective tools such as Icoolda disposable phimosis dilation orthoses which most Chinese parents use now. Answered by Liane Mcluen 2 years ago.

no it will not help stretch the foreskin. you need a different topical steroid. Answered by Billie Girdley 2 years ago.

You can also take a non-drowsy anti-histamine (like Claritin) to help with the itching, as well. Answered by Renay Clive 2 years ago.

I have for the past 4 months had what i think is a yeast infection, i have tried lotrimin which helps but has not knocked out the infection, i use Qtips to clean out under the foreskin and pull out this slightly yellowish cheezy substance,after i clean this out i use another qtip with peroxide to make sure i have it clean then apply the lotrimin. My inside foreskin is extremly itchy at times and has developed extreme phimosis as a result. I have diabetis as well which does not help with the yeast. I have in my medicine cabinit a full tube of Elocon (mometasone furoate cream 1%) will this cream help loosen the foreskin over some time along with stretching? I believe if i can get the foreskin over the head it will be able to stay nice and dry and with continued application of the lptrimin i can get rid of the yeast infection easier. can someone provide me their thoughts on my reasoning? Answered by Bette Torreson 2 years ago.

I do not know your history, but is sounds as though you have got a tight foreskin. If this is the case, then you do not have to do anything about it. It is quite normal and fairly common. Just learn how you should live with it, dont wreck it or yourself in the process. Do not use the Elcon crean for stretching. It is a foolish notion to try and stretch your foreskin in any case, but even more so to try and use something which is not designed for that. I am quoting here from Netdoctor: Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema. When mometasone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch. Mometasone is a potent corticosteroid that is applied to the skin to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders, such as dermatitis and psoriasis that have not responded to milder steroids. It is not going to do your diabetes any good to stuff it up with this medication. Answered by Francisca Timbers 2 years ago.

It may be a yeast infection, but it could also be something called smegma (see link 1). And smegma is pretty harmless and easily cleaned. Using peroxide under the foreskin is a BAD IDEA. It can actually make yeast infections more likely to happen as it kills all the good microbes that would otherwise keep yeast infections at bay. If you're worried about a yeast infection, drink cranberry juice and eat yogurt. It does, surprisingly, help a bit. And if you're really worried, then ask your doctor about an antifungal cream or oral medication. I'm not sure that Elocon will help loosen your foreskin. There are indeed prescription creams (link 2) that can help, but again, you'll have to see your doctor for that. See the remaining links for useful info on stretching exercises and other ways to loosen your foreskin. Answered by Eddy Sitz 2 years ago.

Does Corticosteroids (i.e. Elocon) show up in a blood test?
I have a prescription (Elocon) and I apply the cream once in awhile and am wondering if it will show up in a blood/drug test? If so, how long will it take to get it out of my system? Thanks Asked by Lexie Woerner 2 years ago.

Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids are to different drugs. It should effect a drug test for anabolic steroids. but corticosteroids,which is what you have are not tested for. I would mention it to the drug tester, a lot of people are on corticosteroids for a lot of reasons. Asthma, allergies, as a joint anti-inflammatory etc. which is all different from trying to grow muscle mass by using anabolic steroids, good luck on your test. Answered by Johnetta Hepperly 2 years ago.

Corticosteroids are not screened for on routine drug tests. Corticosteroids are naturally in your system and vary considerably dependent on the time of day and stress levels in your system. Though cortisol can be measured in your blood and the indirect effects of exogenous steroids (i.e. corticosteroids from sources outside your body... pills, creams, etc) can be measured, there is no direct measure available for levels of exogenous corticosteroids that you may be exposed.
