Side Effects and Contraindications:

Reversible HPA axis suppression may occur with the potential for corticosteroid insufficiency. Consider periodic evaluations for HPA axis suppression if applied to large surface areas or used under occlusion. Systemic effects of corticosteroids may also include manifestations of Cushing?s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria. Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity due to their large skin surfaceto- body mass ratios. Initiate appropriate therapy if a concomitant skin condition develops. Discontinue if irritation develops.
