Apply a few drops of DIPROLENE® Lotion to the affected skin once or twice daily and massage lightly until the lotion disappears.

DIPROLENE Lotion is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid. Treatment with DIPROLENE Lotion should be limited to two weeks, and amounts greater than 50 mL per week should not be used.

As with other highly active corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary.

DIPROLENE Lotion should not be used with occlusive dressings. DIPROLENE Lotion should not be applied to the diaper area if the patient requires diapers or plastic pants as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.
