Epiduo Gel (Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% and Adapalene 0.1%)
EPIDUO combines two active substances, Benzoyl Peroxide and Adapalene. Benzoyl peroxide works as an antimicrobial agent. Adapalene has anti-inflammatory property and also prevents clogging of pores.
How to use:
EPIDUO should be applied to the entire acne affected areas once a day on a clean and dry skin. A thin film of gel should be applied, with the fingertips, avoiding the eyes,lips and mucous membranes (see Precautions). Patients should be instructed to wash their hands after applying EPIDUO. Cosmetics may be applied after EPIDUO has dried. If irritation occurs, the patient should be directed to apply non-comedogenic moisturisers, to use the medication less frequently (e.g. every other day), to suspend use temporarily, or to discontinue use altogether. The duration of treatment should be determined by the Doctor on the basis of the clinical condition. Early signs of clinical improvement usually appear after 1 to 4 weeks of treatment.
CONTRAINDICATIONS Hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients. Pregnancy; Women planning a pregnancy
SPECIAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
EPIDUO is for external use only. EPIDUO should not be applied to damaged skin, either broken (cuts or abrasions), sunburnt or eczematous skin. EPIDUO should not come into contact with the eyes, mouth, nostrils or mucous membranes. If product enters the eye, wash immediately with warm water. This product contains propylene glycol (E1520) that may cause skin irritation.
Excessive exposure to sunlight or UV radiation (e.g sunlamps) should be avoided. EPIDUO should not come into contact with any coloured material including hair and dyed fabrics as this may result in bleaching and discoloration. Depending upon the severity of local cutaneous adverse reactions, patients should be instructed to use a moisturizer, reduce the frequency of the application of EPIDUO, or discontinue use. As with other topical retinoids, use of “waxing” as a depilatory method should be avoided on skin treated with EPIDUO. Avoid concomitant use of other potentially irritating topical products (medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, soaps and cosmetics that have strong skin-drying effect and products with high concentrations of alcohol, astringents, spices, or limes).
