How To Use

  • To apply, gently massage a small amount of the medication into the affected area and surrounding skin.
  • Do not bandage, wrap or cover the area treated unless you are instructed to do so by your doctor.
  • Do not use plastic pants or tight fitting diapers on children being treated with Caldecort in the diaper area.
  • Avoid using Caldecort around the eyes unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Side Effects
  • Caldecort may cause burning, stinging, itching, or redness when first applied to the skin.
  • This should disappear in a few days as your body adjusts to the medication.

Precautions

Drug Interactions
