In diaper dermatitis, the cream should be applied to the area to be treated, in a thin layer, 2 to 3 times a day. Symptoms generally resolve after a treatment period of: Interdigital mycoses 3 - 4 weeks; Pityriasis versicolor 1 - 3 weeks; Diaper Dermatitis 1 week (after this period, treatment may continue when indicated by the doctor).
