VUSION Ointment is indicated for the adjunctive treatment of
diaper dermatitis only when complicated by documented candidiasis (microscopic
evidence of pseudohyphae and/or budding yeast), in immunocompetent pediatric
patients 4 weeks and older. A positive fungal culture for Candida albicans is not adequate evidence of candidal
infection since colonization with C. albicans can
result in a positive culture. The presence of candidal infection should be
established by microscopic evaluation prior to initiating treatment.
VUSION should be used as part of a treatment regimen that includes measures
directed at the underlying diaper dermatitis, including gentle cleansing of the
diaper area and frequent diaper changes.
VUSION should not be used as a substitute for frequent
diaper changes. VUSION should not be used to prevent the occurrence of diaper
dermatitis, since preventative use may result in the development of drug
