CUTIVATE® Cream may be used in adult and pediatric patients 3 months of age or older. Safety and efficacy of CUTIVATE® Cream in pediatric patients for more than 4 weeks of use have not been established (see PRECAUTIONS: Pediatric Use).

Apply a thin film of CUTIVATE® Cream to the affected skin areas once or twice daily. Rub in gently.
Other Corticosteroid-Responsive Dermatoses
Apply a thin film of CUTIVATE® Cream to the affected skin areas twice daily. Rub in gently.
As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary.
CUTIVATE® Cream should not be used with occlusive dressings. CUTIVATE® Cream should not be applied in the diaper area, as diapers or plastic pants may constitute occlusive dressings.
In studies where geriatric patients (65 years of age or older, see PRECAUTIONS) have been treated with CUTIVATE® Cream, safety did not differ from that in younger patients; therefore, no dosage adjustment is recommended.
