It should be applied topically to the affected area two or three times daily. The same dosage applies to both adults and children. In infants, long term continuous topical corticosteroid therapy should be avoided. Occlusive dressing is usually only necessary in the case of nail lesions. Once the inflammatory symptoms have disappointed (after about 7 days) treatment can be continued where necessary with Miki-H cream.

It should be used with caution when applied to extensive surface areas or under occlusive dressings including baby napkins. Application to the extensive surface areas of the face should be avoided. In infants, long term continuous topical corticosteroid therapy should be avoided. Adrenal suppression may occur even without occlusion.
Administration of corticosteroids to pregnant animal at high doses can cause abnormalities of fetal development. Topical steroids should not be extensively used in pregnancy.
