Special Precautions
Discontinue use if irritation, sensitivity or other reaction develop and institute appropriate treatment. Corticosteroid applied to the skin can be absorbed in sufficient amount to produce systemic effects such as hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression, manifestation of Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycaemia and glucosuria. Thus suitable precautions should be taken during prolonged treatment, when treating extensive body surface areas, when using the occlusive technique and when treating children (because of a larger skin surface area to bodyweight ratio). Visual disturbance may be reported with systemic and topical corticosteroids use. If a patient presents with symptoms such as blurred vision or other visual disturbances, the patient should be considered for referral to an ophthalmologist for evaluation of possible causes which may include cataract, glaucoma, or rare diseases such as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) which may have been reported after use of systemic and topical corticosteroids. Prolong use of a preparation containing an antibiotic may result in overgrowth of non susceptible organisms including fungi. If this occurs, discontinue use and institute appropriate therapy. Not suitable for ophthalmic use.
