Examples of such drugs include nitroglycerin, anti- hypertensives, antihistamines, NSAIDs, aspirin, phenylpropanolamine, phentolamine or any other medications deemed inappropriate by the Investigator.

- Subject is planning to use any exclusionary over-the-counter (OTC) medications within

48 hours prior to or throughout the study that could modulate vascular blood flow.

- Subject intends to start, stop or change dose of any prescription or OTC medication

within 48 hours prior to or throughout the study. Acetaminophen may be administered, if needed.

- Subject has used prescription or OTC topical medications on the ventral forearms

within 1 month prior to study conduct.

- Subject has a history of sensitivity/allergy to the ingredients found in the test

formulations or has a history of adverse reactions to topical or systemic corticosteroids.

dosing.
