Drug Description


Cutivate Lotion is indicated for the management of various skin conditions, including but not limited to eczema, psoriasis, and rashes. 

Cutivate Lotion is a medium-strength corticosteroid. Its precise mechanism of action is unknown but is believed to work by mitigating skin inflammation, itching, and redness. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Cutivate Lotion, carefully read the accompanying medication guide and patient information leaflet. For any questions or additional information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

Cutivate Lotion is for topical application only and should not be used in the eyes, mouth, or vagina. 

Typically, this lotion is applied to the affected skin area once a day as prescribed by the doctor. 

To properly apply this lotion: 

  1. Begin by washing and thoroughly drying your hands. 
  2. Clean and dry the affected area on your skin. 
  3. Apply a thin layer of the lotion to the affected area, gently massaging it in as instructed by your doctor. 
  4. After each application, remember to wash your hands unless the lotion is being used to treat your hands specifically. 

Refrain from using occlusive dressings or applying this lotion to diapered areas unless your doctor advises otherwise. 

Strictly adhere to the prescribed use of Cutivate Lotion for your specific condition. Avoid excessive or prolonged application, as it will not expedite improvement and may elevate the risk of side effects. 

Cease lotion usage upon achieving control. If there is no improvement within two weeks, consult your doctor.
