Before using Pramasone Cream:

Some medical conditions may interact with Pramasone Cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Pramasone Cream. Because little, if any, of Pramasone Cream is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.

Ask your health care provider if Pramasone Cream may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Pramasone Cream:

Use Pramasone Cream as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

Apply a small amount of medicine to the affected area. Gently rub the medicine in until it is evenly distributed. Wash your hands after applying Pramasone Cream, unless your hands are part of the treated area. Do not bandage or cover the treated skin area unless directed by your doctor. If you miss a dose of Pramasone Cream, apply it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Pramasone Cream.

Important safety information: Pramasone Cream is for external use only. Do not get Pramasone Cream in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get it in any of these areas, rinse immediately with cool water. If Pramasone Cream is applied to the diaper area, apply a very small amount and do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants. Do NOT use more than the recommended dose or for longer than prescribed without checking with your doctor. Check with your doctor before having vaccinations while using Pramasone Cream.
