Before Taking Temovate Scalp Solution

Temovate scalp solution is a highly potent topical corticosteroid. Systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids has resulted in reversible HPA axis suppression, manifestations of Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria in some patients. Conditions that augment systemic absorption include:

  • The Application of the more potent corticosteroids.
  • Use over large surface areas.
  • Prolonged use.
  • The addition of occlusive dressings.

Pediatric patients may absorb proportionally larger amounts of topical corticosteroids and thus be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. Application in pediatric patients under 12 years of age is not recommended.

If irritation develops, topical corticosteroids should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Irritation is possible if Temovate scalp solution contacts the eye. If that should occur, immediate eye flushing with a large volume of water is recommended.

Pregnancy and nursing mothers: Systemically administered corticosteroids appear in human milk and could suppress growth, interfere with endogenous corticosteroid production, or cause other untoward effects.
