Apply a thin film of ACLOVATE® Cream or Ointment to the affected skin areas 2 or 3 times daily; massage gently until the medication disappears.

ACLOVATE® Cream and Ointment may be used in pediatric patients 1 year of age or older. Safety and effectiveness of ACLOVATE® Cream or Ointment in pediatric patients for more than 3 weeks of use have not been established. Use in pediatric patients under 1 year of age is not recommended.

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.

ACLOVATE® Cream or Ointment should not be used with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician. ACLOVATE® Cream or Ointment should not be applied in the diaper area if the child still requires diapers or plastic pants as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.

Geriatric Use: In studies where geriatric patients (65 years of age or older, see PRECAUTIONS) have been treated with ACLOVATE® Cream or Ointment, safety did not differ from that in younger patients; therefore, no dosage adjustment is recommended.
