Prime Can Before Initial Use: Gently push up on actuator with thumb until tab breaks. Shake can vigorously (until product moves inside can). Firmly strike bottom of can onto palm of other hand or a hard surface at least 3 times. Holding can upright over sink, direct initial spray to a non-skin surface. Until primed, DO NOT spray directly on the skin as the initial spray may expel cold liquid propellant. Press down on actuator for 1-3 seconds until foam begins to dispense. If foam does not dispense within 3 seconds, prime can again.

During Use: Holding can upright, dispense BenzEFoamUltraTM into palm of hand. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily. Rub in until completely absorbed. Rinse off after 2 minutes. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. Wash hands with soap and water after use. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.
