For external use. The ointment should be applied as a thin layer on the affected areas of the skin 1–3 times daily. Occlusive bandages can be used on limited areas to enhance the effect. The duration of treatment is determined by the physician depending on the nature of the disease and the effectiveness of the therapy. Usually the course of treatment is 6–14 days.
When administered in children, the total treatment duration should be limited to 5–7 days, and measures that lead to increased absorption of glucocorticosteroids (warming, retention and occlusive bandages) should be avoided.
To be used in children aged over 1 year on limited areas of the skin over a short period (5–7 days). The use of medicine in children 1–3 years old is possible if the expected effect of the therapy outweighs the potential risk for the child. In such cases, it is necessary to limit the total treatment duration and avoid measures that lead to increased resorption and absorption of the steroid (warming, retention and occlusive bandages). Diapers can create an occlusive effect.
