Skinoren is a topical medication used in the treatment of acne, melasma and rosacea. Skinoren is available in cream form and should only be applied to acne skin. Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples to appear commonly on the face, back and chest. The spots and pimples are usually in the form of blackheads and whiteheads, but may also develop into cystic acne which causes large, painful and pus-filled cysts which can scar. This medication helps to clear acne to prevent infection and scarring.
-How do I use Skinoren Cream?
Skinoren cream is usually applied to the affected area twice a day, morning and evening, after the area has been washed and patted dry. For people with sensitive skin, it can be used just in the evening to start with, for a week, before starting to use it twice a day. The cream comes in a tube, and is applied to the skin with the fingertips. It should not be used by children under the age of 12.
It should be used carefully on the face; avoid contact with the eyes and mouth. Creams that are applied to the skin in this way are particularly suitable for people who cannot take - or do not wish to take - an antibiotic by orally.
Skinoren cream can take around four weeks before you will see it working; and if necessary, it can be used for up to a year continuously. It should be used regularly for the best results. For acne that does not respond after a month of treatment, or rosacea that does not respond after two months of treatment, talk to your doctor as Skinoren may not be the best option for you.
-What are the side effects of Skinoren?
Like all medicines, Skinoren cream can cause side effects, although not everybody will experience them.
Side effects that are considered to be common include a burning or itching sensation on the skin where Skinoren is applied, as well as skin dryness or redness. Less commonly, allergies or other skin reactions have been reported. Skin reactions generally improve as the course of treatment continues.
For a full list of potential side effects and other important information, please read the patient information leaflet provided in the pack before starting any course of treatment.
