What should I tell my doctor?TOP
They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
How should I use this drug?TOP
This medicine is for external use only. Do not take by mouth. Follow directions on the prescription label. Wash hands before and after use. Shake the container for 5 to 10 seconds before each use. Gently cleanse the affected area prior to use. While holding the container upright prime the container by pressing down several times on container cap until foam appears. Dispense foam onto a cleansing tissue or pad and gently rub into the affected area. The container and cap should be disassembled and rinsed with warm water after each use. Do not use on healthy skin or over large areas of skin. Do not use an airtight bandage to cover the affected area unless your doctor or health care professional tells you to. Do not get this medicine in your eyes. If you do, rinse out with plenty of cool tap water. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. Do not use for more than 14 days.
Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this drug may be prescribed for children as young as 2 years of age for selected conditions, precautions do apply. If applying this medicine to the diaper area of a child, do not cover with tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants. This may increase the amount of medicine that passes through the skin and increase the risk of serious side effects.
Elderly patients are more likely to have damaged skin through aging, and this may increase side effects. This medicine should only be used for brief periods and infrequently in older patients.
What if I miss a dose?TOP
If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, use only that dose. Do not use double or extra doses.
Where should I store this drug?TOP
Keep out of the reach of children.
Store at room temperature between 20 and 25 degrees C (68 and 77 degrees F). Do not refrigerate or freeze. Store the container upright. Contents of the container are under pressure. Do not incinerate or puncture the aerosol container. Do not store at temperature above 120 degrees F. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.
