Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Do you wish to become pregnant, are you pregnant or are you breast-feeding? Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
Do not apply large amounts of Pannocort during pregnancy. Do not use Pannocort for a prolonged period of time if you are pregnant.
Pannocort can generally be used during breast-feeding. Caution should however be exercised when you apply Pannocort to the nipple or areola in order to avoid intake of the product by your baby.

Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Pannocort can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
Due to absorption through the skin cortisone may enter your body. The risk of this absorption through the skin is higher in infants and children. The absorption through the skin is increased when the product is applied:
- to large areas.
- under an occlusive dressing.
- on damaged or infected skin.
- in large amounts.
A first sign of systemic effects (systemic means that the product has an effect on your whole body, and not just on a particular part of the body) may be the accumulation of fluid in the tissues. Because the absorption by the skin is only limited, the chance of systemic side effects is very small. If these signs do occur, please contact your doctor.

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders
- Thinning of the skin, with striations and small red spots as a result of local blood vessel dilation. This particularly occurs when the product is used for a prolonged period of time.
- Growth or exacerbation of existing infections.
- Increased risk of infections.
- Skin infections around the mouth.
- Delayed healing of scars.
- Discolouration of the skin.
- Hypersensitivity reactions are rare but possible. They are usually caused by one of the ingredients of the cream base. If local effects occur, please contact your doctor.

General disorders:
Very rare: accumulation of fluid in the tissues.

This is a medicine, do not use for a prolonged period of time without medical advice. Keep out of the reach of children. Read the package leaflet carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you need more advice. If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
