Apply a light coating of cream to clean, dry skin on affected areas, once daily at bedtime, or twice daily, as directed by your doctor. Wash hands after application, and avoid excess sun exposure.

Therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved unless directed otherwise by your doctor.

Once this treatment is discontinued, repigmentation will likely occur in the affected areas, although patients can continue to be managed with other treatments.
