What is Locorten?

Flumethasone (usually as the pivalic acid ester flumethasone pivalate, trade name Locacorten or Locorten) is a corticosteroid for topical use. It is available in combination with clioquinol, under the trade name Locacorten-Vioform (in some countries Locorten-Vioform), for the treatment of otitis externa and otomycosis.

Flumethasone shows fully 420 times the potency of cortisone in an animal model for anti-inflammatory activity.
