cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication
cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times a day
because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to 2 to 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
if going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow product to dry then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling. if sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and cpnsult a doctor.
