About azelaic acid

Overview

This medication is used to treat a certain skin condition called rosacea. It helps to reduce the number of inflamed skin lesions.

How to use

This medication is for use only on the skin.

Clean the affected area with a mild soap or soap-free cleanser and pat dry. Apply a thin layer of medication usually twice daily, or use as directed by your doctor. Gently massage the medication into the affected area. Wash your hands well after application. Make-up may be applied after the medication has dried.

Avoid getting any of this medication in the eyes or inside the nose or mouth. If it does get in your eyes, wash them right away with plenty of water. Call your doctor if eye irritation persists.

Do not use large amounts or apply this product more often than directed. Your condition will not clear faster, but the chance for side effects may be increased. Improvement is usually seen within 4 weeks. However, it may take several weeks of continued use before the full effects of this medication are seen. Inform your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or worsen.

Do not apply any dressing or covering over the treated area unless directed by your doctor.

Side effects

Burning, stinging, tingling or itching skin may occur during the first few weeks, but then subside as your body adjusts to this medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: worsening of asthma symptoms (such as increased trouble breathing, increased use of quick-relief inhalers).

This medication may rarely cause abnormal changes in skin color (hypopigmentation). Dark-skinned individuals may notice a lightening in skin color. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice and report these changes if they occur.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, persistent itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
