Probably OK: It's hard to prove any medicine is 100% safe in pregnancy. If it's not essential you could stop it for 1st trimester. However, little of the topical steroid will reach the fetus and many women have used it, not realizing they were pregnant. There does not seem to be any pattern of adverse effects on the fetus.

No: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) will not cause any problems.
