Steroid: Fluocinonide is a potent topical steroid and as a solution, it can be used in the scalp (avoids creams and ointments that mess up the hair). It is an anti-inflammatory drug--to reduce inflammation. So if you have red, itchy scalp or a condition that causes round patches of hair loss (alopecia areata) it can be used for that. For routine hair loss or mild dandruff, it might not be the right med.
