Lidex Gel topical is used to help relieve redness, itching, swelling, or other discomfort caused by skin conditions. This medicine is a corticosteroid (cortisone-like medicine or steroid).
It would be best if you used Lidex Gel only as directed by your doctor. Please do not use more of it, do not use it more often, and do not use it for a longer time than your doctor ordered.
Lidex Gel is for use on the skin only. Do not get it in your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina. Please do not use it on skin areas that have cuts, scrapes, or burns. If it does get on these areas, rinse it off right away with water.
Please do not use it for more than two weeks unless your doctor tells you otherwise.
Systemic absorption of topical Lidex Gel has produced reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression. Recovery of the HPA axis function is generally prompt and complete upon drug discontinuation. Infrequently, signs and symptoms of steroid withdrawal may occur, requiring supplemental systemic corticosteroids.
Children may absorb proportionally larger amounts of topical corticosteroids and thus be more susceptible to systemic toxicity (Pediatric Use). If irritation develops, topical corticosteroids should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.
As with any topical Lidex Gel, prolonged use may produce atrophy of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. It may occur even with short-term use on intertriginous or flexor areas or the face.
In the presence of dermatological infections, the use of an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial agent should be instituted. If a favorable response does not occur promptly, the Lidex Gel should be discontinued until the infection has been adequately controlled.
Using too much of Lidex Gel or using it for a long time may increase your risk of having adrenal gland problems. The risk is greater for children and patients who use large amounts for a long time. Talk to your doctor right away if you or your child have more than one of these symptoms while you are using Lidex Gel:
Stop using this medicine and check with your doctor right away if you or your child have a skin rash, burning, stinging, swelling, or irritation on the skin.
Less common side effects of Lidex Gel may include:
Other side effects not listed may also occur in some patients. If you notice any other effects, check with your healthcare professional.
What should I do if I forget a Lidex Gel dose?
As soon as you notice you missed a dose of Lidex Gel, apply it. If the next dose is due, skip the missed one and continue with your regular dosing plan. Applying a second dose to make up for a missed one is not advised.
What should I know about the storage and disposal of Lidex Gel?
Lidex Gel should be kept securely closed in its containers away from children. Avoid freezing it. Store it away from excessive heat and moisture at room temperature.
What are the side effects of Lidex Gel?
Applying Lidex Gel to the skin may cause burning, stinging, itching, dryness, or redness. Inform your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if any of these side effects persist or get worse.
