Can children use Clobex?

Can children use Clobex?

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed - close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more

Can children use Triesence?

Can children use Triesence?

Specialist decision: Triesence is an injectable steroid into your eye to treat inflammation when steroid eye drops are not helpful. Use on a child would need to be monitored closely and be administered by an eye specialist with experience using this medication. It is not something I typically see in my practice so I suspect your child has a unique health challenge. Good luck!
