Adverse Reactions
Immune system disorders: Very rare: Hypersensitivity.
If sign of hypersensitivity appears, application should stop immediately.
Endocrine disorder: Very rare: features of Cushing's syndrome.
As with other topical corticosteroids, prolonged use of large amounts or treatment of extensive areas can result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the clinical features of Cushing's syndrome. (These effects are more likely to occur in infants and children and if occlusive dressings are used. In infants the napkin may act as an occlusive dressing).
Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders: Common: Local skin burning and pruritus.
Very rare: Local atrophic changes in the skin such as thinning, striate and dilation of the superficial blood vessels (telangiectasia) may be caused by prolonged and intensive treatment with potent corticosteroid preparations, particularly when occlusive dressing are used or when skin folds are involved.
Pigmentation changes, hypertrichosis, allergic contact dermatitis, exacerbation of symptoms, pustular psoriasis (due to treatment of psoriasis with corticosteroid or its withdrawal).
