Direction of use:
Use this medication only on the skin. Clean and dry the affected area first. Then apply a small amount of ointment to the area as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times a day. You may cover the treated area with a bandage.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. Continue to use it for the full-time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.
Avoid using this medication around your eyes, nose, mouth, or on large areas of damaged or broken skin unless otherwise directed by your doctor. If you accidentally get it in your eyes, nose, or mouth, rinse well with plenty of water.
