Fluocinomide is a topical steroid that is applied to inflamed skin or itchy skin so Doctors may prescribe it for the symptoms of poison ivy rash, if the reaction is not too severe (no blistering, etc). If the reaction is severe then your Doctor may prescribe an oral steroid as well to help reduce the inflammation.
