    • Dear Swati,
      Beclo lotion contains beclomethasone which is comparatively a safer corticosteroid. But it should be given only in case when corticosteroid is needed and potential benefits outweigh the potential risks. You should follow the combined directions of your treating dermatologist and gynecologist.
