Diflorasone diacetate is a topical steroid that comes in the form of a cream. It is manufactured by E. Fougera & Co. and is used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-itching agent, like other topical corticosteroids. It is prescribed for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, among other conditions. With respect to potency, it is regarded as a Class I steroid (of classes I–IV).
Little data is available regarding whether diflorasone diacetate would be present in great enough quantities to cause harm to an infant.
