Apply a thin film of DIPROLENE® Ointment to the affected skin once or twice daily. DIPROLENE Ointment is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid. Treatment with DIPROLENE Ointment should be limited to 50 g per week.
As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary.
DIPROLENE Ointment should not be used with occlusive dressings. DIPROLENE Ointment should not be applied to the diaper area if the patient requires diapers or plastic pants as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.
