General Information on Using Locoid

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Locoid include the following:
 
  • This medication is usually applied to the affected area(s) of the skin two or three times a day, depending on the product and the condition being treated.
 
  • Apply the medication sparingly and gently rub it in. More is not better; only a thin film is necessary.
 
  • Do not cover the medication with a dressing or bandage, unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. This can help with absorption of the medicine into the bloodstream, but it also increases the risk for side effects.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Locoid dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
