Fluocinonide can be applied to the affected skin areas 2 to 3 times a day for up to 2 weeks at a time. Longer use of fluocinonide, especially over large areas of skin, may cause significant and irreversible side effects, and therefore isn’t recommended. Fluocinonide shouldn’t be used on the face, or on other areas of the body with thin skin, including the genital region. The use of fluocinonide for children isn’t recommended.
