Pediatric and Off-Label Indications for Diflorasone Emollient Cream

Can Children Use Diflorasone Emollient Cream?

Diflorasone emollient cream is not specifically approved for use in children. In addition, it is not approved to treat a diaper rash and should never be applied to the diaper area, as doing so can increase the risk for side effects. Children especially are at an increased risk for serious steroidal side effects.

  • Penile adhesions or phimosis (typically in young boys)
  • Labial adhesions (typically in young girls)
  • Vitiligo.
