An Introduction to Your Dosage of Diflorasone Emollient Cream

The standard recommended dose for diflorasone emollient cream (ApexiCon® E Cream) varies, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Diflorasone Emollient Cream Dosing Guidelines for Skin Conditions

The standard diflorasone emollient cream dosage for treating itching or inflammation due to a wide variety of skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, or allergic reactions, is a thin film applied to the affected area of the skin one to three times a day.
Although the prescribing information for diflorasone emollient cream does not mention a specific recommended length of treatment, it is standard to limit the use of steroids, including this one, to as short a period as possible to reduce the risk of serious problems.

General Information on Using Diflorasone Emollient Cream

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with diflorasone emollient cream include the following:
  • Do not cover the medication with a dressing or bandage, unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. This can help with the absorption of diflorasone emollient cream into the bloodstream, but it also increases the risk for side effects.
  • If your skin condition does not improve within two weeks, please check with your healthcare provider. A different treatment approach may be necessary.
  • Do not apply a dose of diflorasone emollient cream to the face, underarm, or groin areas, unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or diflorasone emollient cream dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
