Warnings and Precautions


  • The prolonged use on the face of corticosteroids with moderate activity exposes to the occurrence of corticosteroid-induced and paradoxically corticosensitive dermatitis, with rebound after each stop. A gradual weaning, particularly difficult, is then necessary.
  • Due to the passage of the corticosteroid into the systemic circulation, treatment over large areas or under occlusion may cause the systemic effects of systemic corticosteroid therapy, particularly in infants and toddlers. They consist of a cushingoid syndrome and a slowing of growth. These accidents disappear when treatment is stopped, but abrupt cessation can be followed by acute adrenal insufficiency.


  • In infants, it is preferable to avoid corticosteroids of moderate activity. One should be particularly wary of spontaneous occlusion phenomena which may occur in the folds or under the layers.
  • In the event of a bacterial or mycotic infection of a corticosensitive dermatosis, precede the use of the corticosteroid with a specific treatment.
  • If a local intolerance appears, the treatment must be interrupted and the cause must be sought.
  • Breast-feeding: during oral treatment, breast-feeding should be avoided because corticosteroids are excreted in breast milk. By local route, the transdermal passage and therefore the risk of excretion of the corticosteroid in the milk will depend on the surface treated, the degree of epidermal damage and the duration of treatment.




  • No teratogenicity studies have been performed with topical corticosteroids.
  • However, studies concerning the intake of oral corticosteroids have not revealed a higher risk of malformation than that observed in the general population.


  • During oral treatment, breast-feeding should be avoided because corticosteroids are excreted in breast milk.

By local route, the transdermal passage and therefore the risk of excretion of the corticosteroid in the milk will depend on the surface treated, the degree of epidermal damage and the duration of treatment.
