Fluocinonide & yeast: Fluocinonide treats skin aliments such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. The medication reduces swelling, itching and redness associated with the skin conditions. The brand names, available by prescription, for Fluocinonide are vanos and lidex (fluocinonide). Because of the powerful corticosteroid, use Fluocinonide with caution. This medication does not treat yeast.
