Overcome Dispensing Hurdles With Topical Steroids
Topical corticosteroids will continue to cause confusion...due to different salt forms, formulations, etc.
Stay alert for topical steroids with similar-looking names...fluocinolone and fluocinonide, desonide and desoximetasone, etc.
Watch for confusion with different salt forms. For example, topical hydrocortisone comes as plain hydrocortisone...hydrocortisone acetate...and hydrocortisone valerate.
