Only use the cream on your skin
Before use, wash the infected skin and dry it well
Many skin conditions are infectious, so you should have your own towel and flannel so you do not infect anyone else.
For adults and children aged 10 years and over:
Apply a small amount of the cream on the affected area twice daily
Rub in gently until the cream has disappeared.
Do not use the cream for more than seven days.
Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream can make the skin go thinner when you use them for a long time. So elderly people should use less cream because their skin goes thinner naturally.
After you have used the cream: unless the infected skin is on your hands, wash your hands carefully to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people.
Similarly, you should also wash and change any clothes which have touched the infected areas.
If your symptoms carry on or do not start to improve after seven days, you should talk to your pharmacist or doctor
