Avoid eyes. Do not use on infected skin, acne or viral diseases of the skin, such as cold sores and chicken pox, under covered dressings or on children under 2 years except under medical supervision. If condition persists more than 7 days, discontinue use and seek medical advice. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Adjunct Therapy: As soap may irritate the skin, cleanse with a soap alternative eg, Pinetarsol Gel or QV Gentle Wash. As prolonged use is not advisable, use alternatives eg, Egoderm Ointment (for soothing effect), or Egoderm Cream (for emollient effect if the skin is dry) for continued control if long-term therapy is required. To help prevent recurrence, use QV cream.
Use in pregnancy & lactation: Category A drugs are those which have been taken by a large number of pregnant women and women of child-bearing age without any proven increase in the frequency of malformations or other direct or indirect harmful effects on the foetus having been observed. DermAid 0.5% Cream should not be applied to breasts before breast feeding.
Use in infants: Do not use on children under 2 years old unless recommended by a doctor.
