Learn all preparation and usage instructions in the product package, and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about any of the information.
Use this medication only on the skin. However, do not use it on the face, groin or underarms unless directed to do so by your doctor.
Wash and dry your hands before applying. Apply the prescribed amount of medication to the affected area and gently rub in. Do not bandage, wrap or cover the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.
After applying the medication, wash your hands, unless you are using this medication to treat the hands. If applying this medication near the eyes, avoid getting it in the eyes because this may worsen or cause glaucoma. Also, avoid getting the medication in your nose or mouth. If you get the medication in your eyes, nose, or mouth, rinse with plenty of water.

Inform your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse after 2 weeks.
