Apply a thin layer of OLUX Foam to the affected skin areas twice daily.
OLUX Foam is a super-high-potency topical corticosteroid; therefore, limit treatment to 2 consecutive weeks. Patients should not use greater than 50 grams per week or more than 21 capfuls per week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
Therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved.
OLUX Foam should not be used with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician.
OLUX Foam is for topical use only. It is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.
Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands after each application.
Avoid use on the face, groin, or axillae, or if skin atrophy is present at the treatment site.
