Cleanse the wound first with water and a mild soap before applying the cream. It should be applied 2-3 times a day, or when needed, to the affected areas. If an occlusive dressing is used, one application a day may be sufficient. A dry film may appear on the skin after application; this can be easily washed off with water.
The treatment period should not exceed 3 weeks. If symptoms persist for more than 3 weeks consult your doctor.
Avoid contact with eyes - if the cream should accidentally get into the eyes, wash it out immediately with plenty of cold water. Crystaderm® cream is generally well tolerated and not associated with any serious side effects, however a mild sensation of burning may be experienced for a short time after application. For external use only.
