INDICATIONS

Luxq is a medium potency topical corticosteroid indicated for relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive derma-toses of the scalp.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Note: For proper dispensing of foam, can must be inverted.

For application to the scalp invert can and dispense a small amount of Luxq onto a saucer or other cool surface. Do not dispense directly onto hands as foam will begin to melt immediately upon contact with warm skin. Pick up small amounts of foam with fingers and gently massage into affected area until foam disappears. Repeat until entire affected scalp area is treated. Apply twice daily, once in the morning and once at night.

As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of the diagnosis may be necessary.

Luxq should not be used with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician.
