What is Lidex Cream?

Lidex cream is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis and Corticosteroid Responsive Dermatoses. Lidex may be used alone or with other medications.

Lidex belongs to a class of drugs called Corticosteroids, Topical.

Lidex cream usually is applied one to four times a day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use Lidex cream exactly as directed. 

To use Lidex cream, apply a small amount to cover the affected skin area with a thin film and rub it in gently. Be sure to wash your hands immediately afterward.

Before Taking Lidex Cream

Before taking the Lidex cream, consider the following:

  • Your doctor must check your or your child's progress at regular visits for any side effects that Lidex cream may cause.
  • If your or your child's symptoms do not improve within a few days, or if they worsen, check with your doctor.
  • Using too much of this medicine or using it for a long time may increase your risk of having adrenal gland problems. The risk is greater for children and patients who use large amounts for a long time.
