Finoterb cream can be applied once or twice daily.
For external use.
Cleanse and dry the affected areas thoroughly before application of Finoterb. Apply the cream to the affected skin and surrounding area in a thin layer and rub in lightly. In the case of intertriginous infections (submammary, interdigital, intergluteal, inguinal) the application may be covered with a gauze strip, especially at night.
Duration of treatment is 1 week for tinea pedis and tinea cruris. Relief of clinical symptoms usually occurs within a few days. Irregular use or premature discontinuation of treatment carries the risk of recurrence. If there are no signs of improvement after two weeks, the diagnosis should be verified by a physician.
