These side effects are generally mild and may not occur in everyone. However, if you experience any severe or persistent side effects, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. If you have any concerns or questions about the side effects of Temovate Ointment, consult with your healthcare provider.

Temovate Ointment is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its components. If you have had an allergic reaction to Temovate or any other drugs, foods, or substances, inform your healthcare provider.

Topically applied Temovate Ointment can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce systemic effects. This means that the medication can be absorbed into the bloodstream and potentially affect the whole body. Follow the prescribed dosage and avoid excessive use.

Temovate Ointment should not be used with occlusive dressings. Occlusive dressings can increase the absorption of the medication and may lead to systemic effects.

In studies where geriatric patients (65 years of age or older) have been treated with Temovate Ointment, safety did not differ from that in younger patients, and no dosage adjustment is recommended.

Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity from equivalent doses of Temovate Ointment due to their larger skin surface to body mass ratios. Use caution and follow the healthcare provider's instructions when using Temovate Ointment in children.

The information provided here is a summary and does not cover all possible uses, directions, precautions, drug interactions, or adverse effects of Temovate Ointment. Consult a healthcare provider before starting any new medication or changing your treatment plan.
