Section 4.3 has been updated to the following: The following contra-indications apply to the hydrocortisone component: specific bacterial skin diseases (syphilis, tuberculosis), chicken pox, vaccination reactions, perioral dermatitis, viral skin diseases (e.g. herpes simplex, rosacea, shingles), use on broken skin, acne Section 4.4: The following text was deleted: Long-term continuous therapy to extensive areas of the skin and application under occlusive dressing should be avoided, particularly in infants and children, because of the possibility of adrenocortical suppression. Section 4.8: Has been updated to the following: Side-effects include local irritation or burning. If this is severe, treatment should be discontinued. Hypersensitivity reactions may occur. After use on large areas (more than 10% of the body surface) and/or after long-term use (longer than 2-4 weeks) or use under occlusive dressings, local skin alterations such as skin atrophy, telangiectasis, hypertrichosis, striations, hypopigmentation, secondary infection and acneiform symptoms may occur. Section 4.9:The following text was deleted: ‘as soon as possible after ingestion’ Section 5.1:The following text was deleted: Clotrimazole has a broad spectrum of activity (yeast, dermatophytes, moulds and a number of other fungi). It also exhibits activity against Trichomonas vaginalis, staphylococci, streptococci and Bacteroides. Hydrocortisone has a vasoconstrictive effect thus reducing inflammation and oedema. It also has an antipruritic effect. Section 5.2:The following was deleted: Following application of 1% 14C-clotrimazole cream (8mg clotrimazole – 200cm2 with occlusive dressing for six hours) to five healthy volunteers, urinary excretion within six days amounted to a maximum of 0.2% of the activity applied. Maximum equivalent concentrations of clotrimazole in the serum remained below 0.0001mcg/ml. A study of 16 healthy volunteers following topical application of 1.5 – 2.5g Canesten HC Cream (doses of 15 – 25mg hydrocortisone) resulted in no measurably effective levels of hydrocortisone in the blood or urine (analytical method used was Amerlex Cortisol 125I RIA).
