What should I know about Dermatop Emollient Cream before using it?

Because it's a topical corticosteroid, Dermatop Emollient Cream may be absorbed by the skin and can cause side effects throughout the body. To reduce the risk for negative side effects, only use a small amount each time, and only use it for as long as your doctor recommends.
