Make sure not to leave it on the scalp for more than 5 minutes.

The most common side effects of using this medicine include dryness, hair discoloration, and abnormal hair texture. These are not usually serious, but you should call your doctor if you think you might have a severe allergic reaction. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing or breathing problems, feeling dizzy or faint, and nausea. Get emergency help if this happens. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In the case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water, and seek immediate medical attention.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another cream that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ask your doctor if it is safe.
