  • swelling, weight gain (especially in your face or your upper back and torso);
  • irregular menstrual periods, changes in sexual function; or
  • memory problems, feeling irritable.

Stop using diflorasone topical and call your doctor at once if you have:

  • blurred vision, tunnel vision, eye pain, or seeing halos around lights;
  • severe skin irritation where the medicine was applied; or
  • signs of skin infection (swelling, redness, warmth, oozing).

Steroid medicine can affect growth in children. Tell your doctor if your child is not growing at a normal rate while using this medicine.

  • redness or crusting around your hair follicles;
  • burning or itching of treated skin;
  • lightened color of treated skin;
  • skin dryness or irritation;
  • acne, skin rash;
  • increased hair growth;
  • stretch marks; or

These adverse reactions may occur more frequently with the use of occlusive dressings or prolonged use of topical corticosteroids.
