Product Labeling Index


Cloderm Cream 0.1% contains the medium potency topical corticosteroid,
clocortolone pivalate, in a specially formulated water-washable emollient cream
base consisting of purified water, white petrolatum, mineral oil, stearyl
alcohol, polyoxyl 40 stearate, carbomer 934P, edetate disodium, sodium
hydroxide, with methylparaben and propylparaben as preservatives.Chemically, clocortolone pivalate is 9-chloro-6α-fluoro-11β,
21-dihydroxy-16α methylpregna-1, 4-diene-3, 20-dione
21-pivalate. Its structure is as follows:

Clinical Pharmacology:

Topical corticosteroids share anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive actions. The mechanism of anti-inflammatory activity of the topical
corticosteroids is unclear. Various laboratory methods, including
vasoconstrictor assays, are used to compare and predict potencies and/or
clinical efficacies of the topical corticosteroids. There is some evidence to
suggest that a recognizable correlation exists between vasoconstrictor potency
and therapeutic efficacy in man.


The extent of percutaneous absorption of topical corticosteroids
is determined by many factors including the vehicle, the integrity of the
epidermal barrier, and the use of occlusive dressings.Topical corticosteroids can be absorbed from normal intact skin.
Inflammation and/or other disease processes in the skin increase
percutaneous absorption. Occlusive dressings substantially increase the
percutaneous absorption of topical corticosteroids. Thus, occlusive
dressings may be a valuable therapeutic adjunct for treatment of
resistant dermatoses. (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).Once absorbed through the skin, topical corticosteroids are
handled through pharmacokinetic pathways similar to systemically
administered corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are bound to plasma
proteins in varying degrees. Corticosteroids are metabolized primarily in
the liver and are then excreted by the kidneys. Some of the topical
corticosteroids and their metabolites are also excreted into the

Indications And Usage:

Topical corticosteroids are indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses.


Topical corticosteroids are contraindicated in those patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any of the components of the preparation.


Systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids has produced reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, manifestations of Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria in some patients.Conditions which augment systemic absorption include the application of the more potent steroids, use over large surface areas, prolonged use, and the addition of occlusive dressings.Therefore, patients receiving a large dose of a potent topical steroid applied to a large surface area or under an occlusive dressing should be evaluated periodically for evidence of HPA axis suppression by using the urinary free cortisol and ACTH stimulation tests. If HPA axis suppression is noted, an attempt should be made to withdraw the drug, to reduce the frequency of application, or to substitute a less potent steroid.Recovery of HPA axis function is generally prompt and complete upon discontinuation of the drug. Infrequently, signs and symptoms of steroid withdrawal may occur, requiring supplemental systemic corticosteroids.Children may absorb proportionally larger amounts of topical corticosteroids and thus be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. (See PRECAUTIONS - Pediatric Use).If irritation develops, topical corticosteroids should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.In the presence of dermatological infections, the use of an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial agent should be instituted. If a favorable response does not occur promptly, the corticosteroid should be discontinued until the infection has been adequately controlled.

Information For The Patient:

  • Patients using topical corticosteroids should receive the following information and instructions:This medication is to be used as directed by the physician. It is for external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes.Patients should be advised not to use this medication for any disorder other than for which it was prescribed.The treated skin area should not be bandaged or otherwise covered or wrapped as to be occlusive unless directed by the physician.Patients should report any signs of local adverse reactions especially under occlusive dressing.Parents of pediatric patients should be advised not to use
  • Tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants on a child being treated in the
  • Diaper area, as these garments may constitute occlusive
  • Dressings.

Laboratory Tests:

The following tests may be helpful in evaluating the HPA axis suppression: Urinary free cortisol test ACTH stimulation test

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, And Impairment Of Fertility:

Long-term animal studies have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential or the effect on fertility of topical corticosteroids.Studies to determine mutagenicity with prednisolone and hydrocortisone have revealed negative results.

Pregnancy Category C:

Corticosteroids are generally teratogenic in laboratory animals
when administered systemically at relatively low dosage levels. The more
potent corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic after dermal
application in laboratory animals. There are no adequate and
well-controlled studies in pregnant women on teratogenic effects from
topically applied corticosteroids. Therefore, topical corticosteroids
should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies
the potential risk to the fetus. Drugs of this class should not be used
extensively on pregnant patients, in large amounts, or for prolonged
periods of time.

Nursing Mothers:

It is not known whether topical administration of corticosteroids
could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable
quantities in breast milk. Systemically administered corticosteroids are
secreted into breast milk in quantities not likely to have deleterious
effect on the infant. Nevertheless, caution should be exercised when
topical corticosteroids are administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use:

Pediatric patients may demonstrate greater susceptibility to
topical corticosteroid-induced HPA axis suppression and Cushing's
syndrome than mature patients because of a larger skin surface area body
weight ratio. Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, Cushing's
syndrome, and intracranial hypertension have been reported in children
receiving topical corticosteroids. Manifestations of adrenal suppression
in children include linear growth retardation, delayed weight gain, low
plasma cortisol levels, and absence of response to ACTH stimulation.
Manifestations of intracranial hypertension include bulging fontanelles,
headaches, and bilateral papilledema.Administration of topical corticosteroids to children should be
limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic
regimen. Chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and
development of children.

Adverse Reactions:

  • The following local adverse reactions are reported infrequently with topical corticosteroids, but may occur more frequently with the use of occlusive dressings. These reactions are listed in an approximate decreasing order of occurrence: Burning Itching Irritation Dryness Folliculitis Hypertrichosis Acneiform eruptions Hypopigmentation Perioral dermatitis Allergic contact dermatitis Maceration of the skin Secondary infection Skin atrophy Striae Miliaria


Topically applied corticosteroids can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce systemic effects (see PRECAUTIONS).

Dosage And Administration:

Apply Cloderm (clocortolone pivalate) Cream 0.1% sparingly to the affected areas three times a day and rub in gently.Occlusive dressings may be used for the management of psoriasis or recalcitrant conditions. If an infection develops, the use of occlusive dressings should be discontinued and appropriate anti-microbial therapy instituted.
