Mechanism of Action

Topical corticosteroids exhibit anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. At the cellular level, corticosteroids induce peptides called lipocortins. These antagonize phospholipase A2, which is an enzyme that causes the breakdown of leukocyte lysosomal membranes to release arachidonic acid. This step triggers the decrease in the formation and release of endogenous inflammatory mediators including prostaglandins, kinins, histamine, liposomal enzymes, and the complement system.
