  • Low-potency steroids are the safest agents for long-term use on the face, on areas with thinner skin, on large surface areas—and in children
  • To reduce the risk of side effects from corticosteroids, the least potent steroid should be used for the shortest period of time
  • Children often require a shorter duration of treatment and a lower potency steroid
