Diprosone Ointment treats various skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash. It reduces swelling, itching, and redness in these conditions. This medication is a strong corticosteroid.
Diprosone ointment is usually applied once or twice daily. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully. Use Diprosone exactly as directed.
To use Diprosone ointment, apply a small amount to cover the affected skin area with a thin, even film and rub it in gently.
If using Diprosone on a child's diaper area, do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants. Such use may increase side effects.
Call your doctor if the treated area worsens or if burning, swelling, redness, or oozing of pus develops.
Before using Diprosone ointment, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: poor blood circulation and immune system problems.
Rarely, using corticosteroid medications for a long time or over large areas of skin can make it more difficult for your body to respond to physical stress. Before having surgery or emergency treatment, or if you get a serious illness/injury, tell your doctor or dentist that you are using this medication or have used this medication within the past few months.
Though it is unlikely, this medication may temporarily slow down a child's growth if used for a long time. See the doctor regularly so your child's height can be checked.

Serious side effects of Diprosone ointment include:
How long can you use Diprosone Ointment?
You can use Diprosone ointment for up to two weeks unless your provider tells you otherwise. Tell your provider if your skin condition doesn't improve after two weeks.
Can Diprosone ointment be used anywhere on the body?
Unless your provider directs, avoid using Diprosone ointment on the face, groin, armpit, or areas where the skin has been thinned out.
Is it safe to bandage or other wrapping materials to cover the area?
It would be best if you didn't use anything to cover the treated area. Doing so can cause your body to absorb more Diprosone ointment, and you could develop more side effects, such as skin irritation.
