Temovate cream is a topical corticosteroid. It works by decreasing certain immune responses, which reduces redness and itching of skin.
Use Temovate cream as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
- Apply a small amount of medicine to the affected area. Gently rub the medicine in until it is evenly distributed. Wash your hands immediately after applying Temovate cream, unless your hands are part of the treated area. Do not bandage or wrap the affected area unless directed otherwise by your doctor.
- Treatment must be limited to 2 consecutive weeks.
- If you miss a dose of Temovate cream, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.
