We determined if a topical oil containing 0.01% fluocinolone and refined peanut oil (Derma-Smoothe/FS topical oil), among other ingredients, included materials to which peanut-sensitive individuals were sensitized. No immediate (15-min) or delayed (72-h) skin test reactivity was demonstrated in any of the 14 subjects tested. These results suggest that this refined peanut oil-containing dermatologic preparation is safe to use, even in persons who are sensitive to peanuts.
