Warnings and precautions

Systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids may cause hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression (reversible), particularly in younger children, which may lead to adrenal crisis. Allergic contact dermatitis can occur. Prolonged treatment with corticosteroids has been associated with the development of Kaposi’s sarcoma. Adverse systemic effects (hyperglycemia, glycosuria, fluid and electrolyte changes, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression) may occur when used on large surface areas, for prolonged periods, or with an occlusive dressing. Chronic use of corticosteroids in children may interfere with growth and development.
