Highly individualized, according to both the condition being treated and the client's response. Therapy must not be discontinued abruptly. Except for replacement therapy, treatment should always involve the minimum effective dose and the shortest period of time. If corticoster-oids are used for replacement therapy or high doses are used for prolonged periods of time, the dose must be increased if surgery is required.

Lotions are considered best for weeping eruptions, especially in areas subject to chafing (axilla, feet, and groin). Creams are suitable for most inflammations; ointments are preferred for dry, scaly lesions.
