Evalen gel 0.1% should be applied to the cleansed affected areas of the skin, once daily in the evening at bedtime. A thin film of Evalen gel 0.1% should be applied, avoiding contact with the eyes, lip, angle of the nose and mucous membranes. If product enters the eye, wash immediately with warm water. Ensure that the affected areas are dry before application.
During the early weeks of therapy, an apparent exacerbation of acne may occur. This effect is attributable to the action of the drug on previously unseen lesions and should not be considered a reason to discontinue therapy.
Since it is customary to alternate therapies in the treatment of acne, it is recommended that the physician assess improvement of patient disease after 3 months of treatment with Evalen gel 0.1%.
Patients who is necessary to reduce the frequency of application or to temporarily discontinue treatment, frequency of application may be restored or therapy resumed once it is judged that the patient can again tolerate the treatment.
