One important thing to know about diflorasone is that it can be absorbed into the bloodstream, so to avoid overdose or side effects, do not use too much and do not cover it with anything unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. You should not use diflorasone if you are allergic to steroids. Diflorasone may interact with other over-the-counter or prescription medications, so tell your doctor about all of the medications you are taking. Certain medical problems, such as diabetes, hyperglycemia, skin infections or open sores, intracranial hypertension or Cushing's syndrome, may also cause complications with diflorasone use. Rosacea and perioral dermatitis may also affect the use of diflorasone. It is a pregnancy Category C medication so you should speak with your doctor regarding taking this medication while pregnant or nursing.
