General Information on Using Cutivate Cream

  • Do not apply the medicine to the face, underarm, or groin areas, unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
 
  • This medication is approved for use in children as young as three months old for short-term use (four weeks or less). It is unknown if longer use is safe or effective.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with Cutivate Cream, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
