Spectro CR (Controlled Release) Eczema Medicated is a cream medication used to treat the symptoms of eczema. It is a type of corticosteroid that helps to reduce inflammation and itching of the skin. It can be used to treat small patches of itchy, red, dry, and inflamed skin caused by eczema and dermatitis.
The cream is one of the family of medicines called topical corticosteroids and is typically applied directly to the affected area of the skin to relieve symptoms. It works by killing the bacteria that causes acne, as well as helping to unclog pores and reduce inflammation.
Use and Dosage
To use Spectro CR Medicated cream to treat eczema, follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the instructions on the product packaging. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and pat dry. The cream should be applied to the affected area(s) of skin as directed, usually once or twice a day, and should be gently rubbed in until completely absorbed.
Avoid using more of the cream than is directed, and do not apply it to areas of skin that are not affected by eczema. Be sure to avoid the eye area. If excessive dryness or flaking occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. Additionally, if you experience any side effects from using Spectro CR Medicated or if your eczema does not improve, you should consult with your healthcare provider.
Use it exactly as suggested by your doctor or pharmacist. If you miss an application, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next application, skip the missed one and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply a double amount to make up for a missed one.
