displayName: CONTRAINDICATIONS SECTION
FDA Article Code: 34070-3
Product should not be used in patients with
a history of sensitivity to any of its ingredients or adverse reactions
to lidocaine or amide anesthetics, which usually do not cross-react
with “caine” ester type anesthetics. If excessive irritation and
significant worsening occur, discontinue use and seek the advice of
your physician. Product and topical lidocaine should be used
cautiously in those with impaired liver function, as well as the very
ill or very elderly and those with significant liver disease. Product
should be used with caution on patients receiving antiarrhythmic
drugs of Class I since the adverse effects are additive and generally
synergistic. This product is contraindicated for tuberculous or
fungal lesions or skin vaccinia, varicella and acute herpes simplex.
Topical corticosteroids are contraindicated in those patients with a
history of hypersensitivity to any of the components of the

For external use only. Not for ophthalmic use.
Topical formulations of lidocaine may be absorbed to a greater
extent through mucous membranes and abraded, fissured or
irritated skin than through intact skin. Product should not be
ingested or applied into the mouth, inside of the nose or in the
eyes. Product should not be used in the ears. Any situation where
lidocaine penetrates beyond the tympanic membrane into the
middle ear is contraindicated because of ototoxicity associated with
lidocaine observed in animals when instilled in the middle ear.
Product should not come into contact with the eye or be applied
into the eye because of the risk of severe eye irritation and the loss
of eye surface sensation which reduces protective reflexes and can
lead to corneal irritation and possibly abrasion. If eye contact
occurs, rinse out the eye immediately with saline or water and
protect the eye surface until sensation is restored.
displayName: PRECAUTIONS SECTION
FDA Article Code: 42232-9
If irritation or sensitivity occurs or infection
appears, discontinue use and institute appropriate therapy. If
extensive areas are treated, the possibility of systemic absorption
exists. Systemic absorption of topical steroids has produced
reversible hypothalamic pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression,
manifestations of Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and
glycosuria in some patients. Conditions which augment systemic
absorption include the application of the more potent steroids, use
over large surface areas, prolonged use, and the addition of
occlusive dressings. Therefore, patients receiving a large dose of
potent topical steroids applied to a large surface area, or under an
occlusive dressing, should be evaluated periodically for evidence of
HPA axis suppression. If noted, an attempt should be made to
withdraw the drug to reduce the frequency of application, or to
substitute a less potent steroid.
Recovery of the HPA axis function is generally prompt and complete upon
discontinuation of the drug. Infrequently, signs and symptoms of steroid
withdrawal may occur, requiring supplemental systemic corticosteroids.
Children may absorb proportionately larger amounts of topical
cortico-steroids and thus be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. If
irritation develops, topical steroids should be discontinued and
appropriate therapy instituted. In the presence of dermatological
infections, the use of an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial agent
should be instituted. If a favorable response does not occur promptly, the
corticosteroid should be discontinued until the infection has been
