Elidel Side Effects : What are The Risks? Do not use Elidel as the first prescription treatment for your atopic dermatitis since there are risks of some serious side effects. The following are the major potential risks and side effects of Elidel therapy. However, this list is not complete. • Possible risk of lymph node or skin cancer. This concern is based on information from animal studies, case reports in a small number of patients, and knowledge of how drugs in this class work. The potential for systemic immunosuppression is unknown and the role of Elidel in the development of the cancer-related events in the individual patient reports is also uncertain at this time. Animal studies have showed that skin tumors formed faster in animals treated with pimecrolimus, the active ingredient in Elidel, and exposed to light. Because of this, you should limit exposure to natural or artificial sunlight, such as sunlamps or tanning beds. • Viral infections: Elidel may increase the chance of getting chicken pox, shingles, skin warts, or other viral infections. • Skin irritation: Elidel’s most common side effect is a sensation of warmth or burning where you apply the cream. See your doctor if your reaction is severe, or you have it for more than 1 week. • Other side effects may include headache, throat or nose redness and soreness, flu symptoms, fever, and cough.
