Can Children Use Cordran Tape?

This product is not specifically approved for use in children. This drug is a highly potent steroid; if steroid treatment is necessary for a child, trying a less potent steroid first would be appropriate. Keep in mind that Cordran Tape is not approved to treat diaper rash, due to the increased risk of side effects. Young children are more likely to absorb a dangerously high amount of the medication, especially when applied to broken skin, as with a diaper rash.
 

Off-Label Cordran Tape Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Cordran Tape, except for its use in children.
