CUTIVATE® (fluticasone propionate cream) Cream may be used in adult and pediatric patients 3 months of age or older.

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® (fluticasone propionate cream) Cream should not be used with occlusive dressings. CUTIVATE® (fluticasone propionate cream) Cream should not be applied in the diaper area, as diapers or plastic pants may constitute occlusive dressings.
