What should I do if I miss a dose of Elocon ointment?

It's okay if you forget to apply Elocon ointment at the usual time. Most people use this medication once a day. If that's the case, simply apply Elocon ointment as soon as you remember. If you realize you missed an entire day, don't apply extra ointment to make up for a missed dose. If your doctor has instructed you to use Elocon more than once a day, apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. Wait at least a few hours before applying another dose of Elocon ointment.
