Indication
Indication
  • topical corticosteroids are indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses.
  • Fetal Risk
    Fetal Risk
  • Corticosteroids are generally teratogenic in laboratory animals when administered systemically at relatively low dosage levels.
  • The more potent corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic after dermal application in laboratory animals.
  • There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women on teratogenic effects from topically applied corticosteroids. Therefore, topical corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Drugs of this class should not be used extensively on pregnant patients, in large amounts, or for prolonged periods of time.
  • Breast Feeding
    Breast Feeding
  • It is not known whether topical administration of corticosteroids could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable quantities in breast milk. systemically administered corticosteroids are secreted into breast milk in quantities not likely to have a deleterious effect on the infant.
  • Nevertheless, caution should be exercised when topical corticosteroids are administered to a nursing woman.
