Locoid Dosage

Depending on the skin condition being treated and the particular product you are using, your initial Locoid dosage will typically call for a small amount of the medicine to be applied to the affected areas of the skin two or three times daily. Do not cover the medicine with a bandage without your healthcare provider's approval, as this increases your risk for side effects.
