Cormax ointment is a type of steroid and works by reducing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system. The ointment is applied to the affected areas of the skin twice daily. Using this medicine for extended periods (more than two weeks) can cause potentially serious problems, such as diabetes or Cushing's syndrome.
