What is the most important information I should know about Kenalog?

Use Kenalog exactly as directed on the label, or as it has been prescribed by your doctor. Do not use the medication in larger amounts or for longer than recommended.
Do not cover treated skin areas with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor has told you to. If you are treating the diaper area of a baby, do not use plastic pants or tight-fitting diapers. Covering the skin that is treated with Kenalog can increase the amount of the drug your skin absorbs, which may lead to unwanted side effects. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Avoid using Kenalog on your face, near your eyes, or on body areas where you have skin folds or thin skin.
Do not use Kenalog on a child without a doctor's advice. Children are more sensitive to the effects of Kenalog.

Kenalog will not treat a bacterial, fungal, or viral skin infection.
Contact your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it gets worse after using Kenalog for several days.
