Directions for use:
Dab or press (do not rub) a small amount of paste onto the area to be treated until the paste sticks and a smooth and slippery film develops. A cotton swab may be used to apply the paste. Do not attempt to spread or rub the paste in as it will only cause it to become crumbly, grainy, or gritty.
Apply to the affected area 2 to 3 times daily after meals or at bedtime as directed by your doctor or a dentist. The treated area should not be covered or wrapped unless your doctor directs you to do so. Inform the prescribing doctor or dentist if the condition persists or worsens after 7-14 days of treatment. Do not swallow.
