Discontinue use if irritation or sensitivity develops. Safety of its use during pregnancy and lactation has not been established. Thus it should be used only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus or nursing infant. Special care must be taken when giving to paediatric patients as systemic absorption can occur in topical administration causing growth retardation. Caution is advised if the medication is to be applied to extensive surface area or under occlusive dressing. Not suitable for ophthalmic use.
