General Information on Using ApexiCon E Cream

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with ApexiCon E Cream include the following:
  • 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 ApexiCon E Cream into the bloodstream, but it also increases the risk for side effects.
  • If your skin condition does not improve within two weeks, please check with your healthcare provider. A different treatment approach may be necessary.
  • Do not apply a dose of ApexiCon E Cream to the face, underarm, or groin areas, unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or ApexiCon E Cream dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
