It needs to be stored at controlled room temperature 15°-30°C (59°-86°F) and should be protected from freezing. This can also be applied in the form of occlusive dressing in case of psoriasis or skin fissures.
Burning, itching, irritation, or dryness may occur when the cream is first applied to the skin. This should disappear in a few days as your body adjusts to the medication. Because of the risk of adverse effects associated with systemic absorption, topical corticosteroids should be used cautiously in the elderly and in children.
