Overdosage
Corticosteroid applied to the skin can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce systemic effects such as hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression, manifestation of Cushing's Syndrome, hyperglycaemia and glycosuria. Tests which may be helpful in evaluating hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression include urinary free cortisol test and ACTH stimulation test. If hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression is found, then the drug should be withdrawn, frequency of application reduced or a weaker steroid used. Supplemental systemic corticosteroid may be required if signs and symptoms of steroid withdrawal occurs.
