What are the side effects of Propysalic nf lotion?
Side effects are skin thinning, loss of skin tone and risk of infections
Hello. Thank you for writing to us at healthcaremagic
I have taken a note of your query.
This lotion contains a superpotent topical steroid i.e clobetasol propionate 0.05% along with salicylic acid in a lotion base.
Clobetasol propionate is a superpotent topical steroid and can cause side effects like skin thinning/cutaneous atrophy, loss of pigment cells and increased risk of bacterial infections like folliculitis/furunculosis etc
Common indications of its use are steroid responsive dermatoses like scalp psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and scalp lichen planus, Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) etc.
To decrease the incidence of adverse effects it is advisable to be used only for as long as the desired response is achieved Or as an intermittent treatment after the initial 2-4 weeks of regular use in steroid responsive dermatoses like scalp psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis scalp lichen planus (scalp LP), scalp DLE (Discoid Lupus Erytehmatosus).
Scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis usually respond within 2-4 weeks when it can be stopped Or used as an intermittent therapy thereafter, if required.
Scalp DLE and scalp LP may require longer treatment durations.
To summarize: It should be used only for as long as advised by your doctor and only under the supervision of a dermatologist.
