Effects on Endocrine System

Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis Suppression (HPA)

WYNZORA cream can cause reversible Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis Suppression (HPA) with potential clinical glucocorticosteroid insufficiency. This may occur upon withdrawal of treatment or during treatment. Factors that predispose a patient to HPA axis suppression include the use of occlusive dressings, high-potency steroids, prolonged use, large treatment surface areas, altered skin barrier, liver failure, and young age.

Evaluation for HPA axis suppression will be done by using the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation test. If HPA axis suppression is seen, your doctor will gradually withdraw WYNZORA cream, substitute it with a less potent corticosteroid, or reduce the frequency of application.

Skin problems like:

  • thinning of your skin
  • dryness
  • burning
  • changes in skin color
  • inflammation
  • redness
  • itching
  • infection
  • irritation
  • raised bumps on your skin

Cushing’s Syndrome (large amounts of the hormone cortisol) and Hyperglycemia (High blood sugar)

Cushing’s syndrome and hyperglycemia may occur due to the use of the topical corticosteroid. These complications generally occur after the use of high-potency topical corticosteroids, especially in large doses.

Additional Considerations for Endocrine Adverse Reactions

Pediatric patients may have a chance of systemic toxicity due to their larger skin surface-to-body mass ratios. Using more than one corticosteroid-containing product at the same time may increase total systemic corticosteroid exposure.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis with Topical Corticosteroids

Allergic contact dermatitis may happen when using a topical corticosteroid so your doctor should conduct appropriate diagnostic patch testing.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis with Topical Calcipotriene

Allergic contact dermatitis may happen when using topical calcipotriene so your doctor should conduct appropriate diagnostic patch testing.

Eye problems

Using WYNZORA cream may increase the risks of glaucoma and cataract. Avoid contact with WYNZORA cream with eyes. WYNZORA cream may cause eye irritation. Advise patients to report any visual symptoms and consider visiting an ophthalmologist for evaluation.
