How to apply properly
Apply the proper amount of the drug
Apply the proper amount of the drug one to several times a day, referring to below (Approximate amount to apply).
- Approximate amount to apply
In application of topical steroids, FTU (finger tip unit) is used.
For ointments and creams, 1 FTU is the amount from the end of the index finger to the first crease in the finger of an adult, and it is about 0.5 g.* (This assumes the tube has about a 5 mm nozzle).
This amount is called 1 FTU, and this is enough to treat an area twice the size of the flat of an adult’s hand with the fingers together (about 2% of the body surface area).
*This may differ depending on the size of the tube.
Put the drug on the affected area and spread it over the area gently until it shines. When the proper amount is applied, the surface of the area gets slightly sticky and a tissue paper sticks to the skin.
- Do not rub it strongly.
How to apply to a small area
Put a small amount of the drug on your fingertip and place it on the affected area. Then, spread it gently to cover the affected area until the skin slightly shines. You do not have to rub it strongly.
- Put a small amount of the drug on the affected area.
How to apply and precautions for application
With clean hands
Wash your hands with soap and running water and dry them with a clean towel, etc. Put the topical drug on a clean hand, place it on the affected area, and spread it gently, not rubbing.
To clean skin
The drug does not show full effect on dirty skin. To apply to clean skin after taking a bath is the best.
However, to reduce irritation to the skin, apply it after your body is cooled. Remove the water on the affected area by gently pressing down with tissue paper, etc. Do not rub the area.
Do not touch the nozzle of the tube
To not contaminate the drug in the tube, do not apply the drug directly from the nozzle of the tube to the affected area, but put the drug on a well-washed clean finger and then apply it. Pay attention not to touch the nozzle with your finger.
If your symptoms do not get better or get worse after 5 or 6 days of use, stop using it and consult a doctor, pharmacist, or registered seller.
