Special Precautions
Discontinue use if irritation, sensitivity, excessive dryness or other reactions develop. In the presence of infection, appropriate treatment should be given. Corticosteroids applied topically can be absorbed in sufficient amount to produce systemic effects like adrenal suppression, manifestations of Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycaemia and glucosuria in some patients, particularly in infants and children. Salicylic Acids in preparation applied to the skin can also be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce salicylism. Therefore suitable precautions must be taken with Beprosalic during prolonged treatment, when treating extensive body surfaces areas, when using the occlusive technique and when treating children (because of a larger skin surface area to bodyweight ratio). Suitable precautions must be taken when treating stasis dermatitis and other skin diseases with impaired circulation. Discontinue use if irritation, sensitivity or other reactions develop and institute appropriate treatment. Not suitable for ophthalmic use. Do not use in or around the eyes.
