Don't apply Elocon to broken or infected areas of skin, unless the infection is also being treated. Don't apply it to the face unless instructed to by your specialist. Don't apply it around your eyes or eyelids. Take care to avoid getting the cream or ointment in your eyes, mouth or nose. Rinse with cold water if accidental contact occurs. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying Elocon, unless the hands are the area being treated. Don't cover the area being treated with airtight dressings such as bandages or other dressings unless directed by a doctor, as these increase the absorption of the medicine into the body and so increase the risk of side effects. If your doctor has advised you to use dressings with Elocon, you should cleanse the skin before applying the cream or ointment under a fresh dressing. Be aware that nappies and waterproof pants can act as an airtight dressing and can increase the absorption of the medicine.
