Its not a new drug. When I was in the Army it was used for malaria prevention in Nam. It is an antibacterial drug and is being used in dermatological problems.
You should report any of these side effects to your dr immediately. sore throat, fever, pallor, purpura or jaundice. It can cause a rare condition that makes your skin peel. These are not common reactions, and I never saw any of them with any of the guys on dapsone. You just need to know it can happen.
