CUTIVATE® Cream may be used in adult and pediatric patients 3 months of age or older. Safety and efficacy of CUTIVATE® Cream in pediatric patients for more than 4 weeks of use have not been established (see PRECAUTIONS: Pediatric Use). The safety and efficacy of CUTIVATE® Cream in pediatric patients below 3 months of age have not been established.
Atopic Dermatitis: Apply a thin film of CUTIVATE® Cream to the affected skin areas once or twice daily. Rub in gently.
Other Corticosteroid-Responsive Dermatoses: Apply a thin film of CUTIVATE® Cream to the affected skin areas twice daily. Rub in gently.
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.
CUTIVATE® Cream should not be used with occlusive dressings. CUTIVATE® Cream should not be applied in the diaper area, as diapers or plastic pants may constitute occlusive dressings.
Geriatric Use: In studies where geriatric patients (65 years of age or older, see PRECAUTIONS) have been treated with CUTIVATE® Cream, safety did not differ from that in younger patients; therefore, no dosage adjustment is recommended.
