Acne Treatment

  • For the treatment of acne


For external use only

Do not use

Skin irritation may occur, characterized by redness, burning, itching, peeling, or possibly swelling. Irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently or in a lower concentration.

When using this product
  • Apply to affected areas only.
  • Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use sunscreen.
  • This product may bleach hair or dyed fabrics.
  • Skin irritation and dryness are more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, use only one topical acne medication at a time.

Stop use and ask a physician
  • If too much skin irritation or sensitivity develops or increases.

Keep out of reach of children.

If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

  • Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying.
  • Cover the affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times a day.
  • Because too much drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, and then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a physician.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
  • If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow Emergency Spot Fix to dry, then follow directions of the sunscreen labeling.
  • If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

Other information
