Pediatric and Off-Label Indications for Diflorasone Diacetate

Can Children Use Diflorasone Diacetate?

Diflorasone diacetate is not specifically approved for use in children. Children are at an increased risk for serious side effects of steroids. In general, steroids (including this medication) are used for short-term treatment only. This is especially important for children.
 
Keep in mind that diflorasone diacetate is not approved to treat diaper rash and should never be applied to the diaper area, due to the increased risk of side effects, without the specific recommendation of your child's healthcare provider.
 

Off-Label Uses for Diflorasone Diacetate

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend steroids for something other than the treatment of itching and inflammation of the skin. These uses (known as "off-label" uses) might include treating the following conditions:
 
  • Penile adhesions or phimosis (typically in young boys)
  • Labial adhesions (typically in young girls)
  • Vitiligo.
