Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Dec 23, 2020.
Generic name: HYDROCORTISONE BUTYRATE 1mg in 1mL
Dosage form: topical lotion
Apply a thin layer to the affected skin areas two times daily and rub in gently. Do not apply LOCOID Lotion in the diaper area unless directed by a physician.
Discontinue therapy when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of the diagnosis may be necessary. Before prescribing for more than 2 weeks, any additional benefits of extending treatment to 4 weeks should be weighed against the risk of HPA axis suppression and local adverse events. The safety and efficacy of LOCOID Lotion has not been established beyond 4 weeks of use [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
Do not use LOCOID Lotion with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician. Avoid use in the diaper area, as diapers or plastic pants may constitute occlusive dressings.
LOCOID Lotion is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.
