Acne treatment

  • For the management of acne.
  • Helps clear up acne blemishes.


For external use only.

  • Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following the use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

  • Avoid contact with eyes. If excessive skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and consult a doctor.

Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.


Cleanse skin thoroughly and tone before applying. Cover the affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Follow with your moisturizer if desired. 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. For best results, use with other DHC Salicylic Acne products.
