FAQ
Diffusimax is used to prepare medication that is applied directly to the skin. Diffusimax does not contain medications - they are added by a pharmacist as prescribed by your doctor.
Patients and their doctors are increasingly choosing topical medications. While there are some over-the-counter preparations, they are extremely limited in terms of the number of different medications that are available and how strong they are. With Diffusimax, your doctor chooses the medication and the strength that is right for you. Your pharmacist prepares the prescription cream using Diffusimax. Your doctor can select from a wide range of medications and strengths and can even prescribe combinations of medications in the same cream.

Applying a Diffusimax Prescription
  • Wash your hands before applying your prescription cream.
  • Rub a thin layer of Diffusimax cream into the skin region as directed by your physician or pharmacist.
  • Allow Diffusimax to dry for a few minutes before applying clothing over the area (if applicable). The product will leave a slightly waxy feeling.
  • Wash your hands with cold water after application. Cold water is better than warm water at dissolving the cream.
When using a Diffusimax prescription, avoid contact with the eyes. If Diffusimax does come into contact with your eyes, rinse with cold water.

Diffusimax must only be used topically and must not be ingested.

Skin irritation with Diffusimax is very uncommon, but can occur. It is also possible to have a skin reaction to the medications that are mixed in Diffusimax. If you develop a skin reaction, discuss it with your pharmacist or physician.

Store Diffusimax in its original container at room temperature and keep the lid on while not in use.

With certain prescriptions, the cream can liquefy or separate after a period of time. The same thing can happen if the formulation is accidentally cooled. The prescription can be restored to its original consistency by re-mixing with a clean utensil. If the utensil is disposable, it can be discarded; if not, it should be washed thoroughly with dish soap and water.
