INDICATIONS AND USAGE

1.1 Relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in adults.

1.2 The topical treatment of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis in pediatric patients 3 months to 18 years of age.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Locoid Lipocream is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.

Therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of the diagnosis may be necessary.
