Prednicarbate is a relatively new topical corticosteroid drug. It is similar in potency to hydrocortisone. Compared to other topical corticosteroids, like betamethasone, repeated prednicarbate use does not cause skin atrophy as quickly.[citation needed] Corticosteroids have always been an important part of the pharmacological arsenal of dermatology; however, their tendency to produce side-effects has caused the need to search for new preparations.

It is nonhalogenated.[1]
