Corticosteroid ointment for mouth

Betamethasone dipropionate (Diprolene; Diprolene AF; [Diprosone and Alphatrex have been discontinued]) is a corticosteroid topical medication prescribed for relief of inflammation and itching associated with a variety of skin conditions for example:

  • atopic dermatitis ,
  • contact dermatitis ,
  • plaque psoriasis , and
  • allergic dermatitis .
Side effects, drug interactions , dosing information, and patient safety information should be reviewed prior to taking any medication.

There is no evidence of safe and effective use of topical corticosteroids in pregnant mothers. Therefore, they should be used only if clearly needed. Long term use and large applications of topical corticosteroids may cause birth defects in the unborn. It is not known whether topical corticosteroids enter breast milk. Therefore, caution must be exercised before using it in nursing mothers. Topical corticosteroids should not be applied to the breasts of nursing mothers unless the mothers instructed to do so by the physician.

The most common side effect of topical corticosteroid use is skin atrophy. All topical steroids can induce atrophy, but higher potency steroids, occlusion, thinner skin, and older patient age increase the risk. The face, the backs of the hands, and intertriginous areas are particularly susceptible. Resolution often occurs after discontinuing use of these agents, but it may take months. Concurrent use of topical tretinoin (Retin-A) % may reduce the incidence of atrophy from chronic steroid applications. 30 Other side effects from topical steroids include permanent dermal atrophy, telangiectasia, and striae.
