Information that comes with VUSION Ointment before you use it on your
child. This leaflet does
not take the place of talking to your health care provider about your
child’s medical condition or
treatment. If you have any questions or if you are not sure about
any of the information on
VUSION Ointment, ask your health care provider, or pharmacist.
What is VUSION Ointment?
VUSION Ointment is a
prescription skin medicine used to treat diaper rash that also has a
yeast infection in children
who have a normal immune system. VUSION Ointment contains
medicines that will help treat
the yeast infection and the diaper rash, but you must also
change your child’s diapers very often so that your
child is not wearing a wet or soiled
diaper. Even if you use VUSION
Ointment, diaper rash will not go away if you do not keep your
child’s diaper area clean
and dry. You should use water or a very mild cleanser to
clean your child’s diaper area.
VUSION Ointment is not
used to prevent diaper rash or to be used for more than 7 days.
Who should not use VUSION Ointment?
VUSION Ointment is not
for treatment of all cases of diaper rash. VUSION Ointment is only
for diaper rash that also
has a yeast infection. Most cases of diaper rash do not need the
yeast medicine that is in
VUSION Ointment because most cases of diaper rash do not also
have a yeast infection.
Your health care provider will need to do a special
test to tell if your child’s diaper rash
also has a yeast infection. Do not use VUSION Ointment on
your child’s diaper rash
unless your health care provider tells you that there is
also a yeast infection.
Do not use VUSION Ointment on any other children.
Do not use VUSION Ointment on your child’s
diaper rash if they are allergic to
anything in it. See the end of this leaflet for a list of
ingredients in VUSION Ointment.
