Medically reviewed on November 15, 2017.
Apply a thin layer of Temovate® E to the affected skin areas twice daily and rub in gently and completely. Wash hands after each application.
Temovate® E is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid; therefore, treatment should be limited to 2 consecutive weeks, and amounts greater than 50 grams per week should not be used.
In moderate to severe plaque-type psoriasis, Temovate® E applied to 5% to 10% of body surface area can be used for up to 4 weeks. The total dosage should not exceed 50 grams per week. When dosing for more than 2 weeks, any additional benefits of extending treatment should be weighed against the risk of HPA suppression. Therapy should be discontinued when control has been achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary. Treatment beyond 4 consecutive weeks is not recommended.
Temovate® E should not be used with occlusive dressings.
