Corticosteroids are generally teratogenic in laboratory animals when administered systemical-ly at relatively low dosage levels. The more potent corticosteroids have been shown to be ter-atogenic 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.
Of all various creams it is The Clear or as it is also often called The Cream that has stolen the limelight as king steroid cream. This very famous steroid cream contains two key ingredients, testosterone and epitestosterone. Although this steroid cream works and works well in-terms of aiding in performance enhancing it is in its detectability where it truly stands out. The entire purpose of this drug development was for one simple reason; to allow tested athletes the ability to use anabolic steroids without being caught and it worked brilliantly. Keep in mind, this product is very expensive and in comparison to injectable steroids the results are again night and day. One cannot expect massive gains in muscle tissue due to its use; the idea is to simply give one a boost without being caught and in-terms of price, the price you will pay is astronomical.
Short-term side effects of oral PUVA may include sunburn, nausea and vomiting, itching, abnormal hair growth, and too much repigmentation or darkening of the treated patches or the normal surrounding skin (hyperpigmentation). If received for longer periods of time, this type of treatment may increase your risk of skin cancer. To avoid sunburn and reduce your risk of skin cancer, you'll need to apply sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight for 24 to 48 hours after each treatment. Wear protective UVA sunglasses for 18 to 24 hours after each treatment to avoid eye damage, particularly cataracts.
