How should I use Caldecort?

You should use Caldecort exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not use more Caldecort than directed or for longer than a few days, even if symptoms do not improve. Before applying Caldecort, wash and dry your hands. Then apply a thin layer of Caldecort to the affected area, rubbing the cream into the skin gently. Do not cover the treated area with a bandage unless directed to do so by your doctor. Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes that will rub against the treated area. Do not use extra medication if you missed a dose. Using too much medication increases your risk for unwanted side effects.
