How much topical corticosteroid to prescribe?

For one foot, for 1 application, use 2 FTUs (fingertip units - a fingertip unit is defined as the amount of semi-solid expressed from a tube with a 5mm diameter nozzle, applied from the distal skin-crease to the tip of the index finger of an adult ), which is 1 gram (this should cover an area the size of the palm of your hand with the fingers held together). You will need 15 grams to treat one adult male BID x 1 week.
