Trimovate is formulated to be applied topically to the affected skin only.
The cream should be applied sparingly to the affected area, taking care not to get too much on the surrounding healthy skin. Application of the cream is usually once or twice a day until the condition has improved. Once the symptoms have settled, treatment should be stopped or switched to a less potent preparation.
Continuous treatment with Trimovate should be for no longer than seven days. If you have not seen any improvement in your condition within this timeframe, or if your symptoms worsen, then this should be reviewed by your GP. Patients need to allow enough time for the cream to be absorbed before applying any other emollient. If the cream is being applied to an area other than the hands, then patients need to make sure they wash their hands thoroughly after each application.
Trimovate can be used in all age groups including children and the elderly. The cream should always be used in accordance with the prescribers instructions.
