DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Unless otherwise prescribed by the physician, apply Ecoderm to the affected skin areas twice daily, i.e. in the morning and in the evening. Intertriginous spaces (e.g. interdigital spaces, gluteal folds) in the oozing phase should initially be kept dry with gauze strips or absorbent gauze. Application of occlusive dressings is recommended for the treatment of onychomycoses.

Ecoderm Spray Powder is used to support the Ecoderm Spray Solution and Cream therapy, as well as for the follow-up and prophylactic treatment. Ecoderm Spray powder alone may, for example, be sufficient in cases of intertrigo.

Ecoderm should be used on a regular basis according to the instructions. In patients with tinea pedis and/or tinea versicolor prolonged therapy may be necessary.
