Side Effects
After application, a slight stinging sensation may occasionally be noticed. This transient symptom is most likely to disappear after several applications. Other side effects may include itching, redness, allergy and thinning of the skin.
Intolerance to the occlusive dressing (miliary eruptions, folliculitis) may be observed, as with other corticosteroids. In such cases, the use of an occlusive dressing should be discontinued. The use of the steroid may also need to be reduced or discontinued, depending on the severity of the reaction.
In long-term treatment of extensive skin areas with occlusive dressing, one should bear in mind the possibility of inhibition of adrenal function. Therefore, adrenal function should be monitored under these circumstances.
