What is Tazret (Tazarotene) used for?
Tazret (Tazarotene) is a topical compound similar to vitamin A that is used to treat patients who have acne. It operates by encouraging the growth of new skin cells to constantly renew the surface of the skin and prevent the formation of blackheads. This action may also make it useful for treating plaque psoriasis as well as for reducing the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines appearing on the face.
How should I use Tazret (Tazarotene)?
Tazret (Tazarotene) should always be used according to your physician's instructions to get the most effective results from treatment. The cream is normally applied once daily, but your individual instructions will depend on your health condition and the severity of your symptoms. Rinse the skin before application to remove any dirt or loose skin, apply a small layer of cream, gently massage it into the skin, and allow any excess medication to evaporate. Wash your hands after each use to prevent the cream from contacting any areas not being treated or the mucous membranes as this may cause unexpected health problems.
What are the side effects of Tazret (Tazarotene)?
Side effects associated with the use of Tazret (Tazarotene) include:
Stop using the cream and contact your physician immediately if you experience any worrying symptoms such as severe pain or signs of an allergic reaction such as intense skin rash, swelling, or difficulty breathing. These conditions may require reduced application frequency or immediate medical attention in serious cases to prevent more problems from occurring.
Tazret (Tazarotene) should not be applied to skin that is broken or severely damaged. Do not begin using the medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have pustular psoriasis, or exfoliative psoriasis. You are also suggested to inform your physician about any other chronic health conditions you have that may cause unexpected problems during treatment to make sure any necessary adjustments are made to your regimen.
Strictly follow all instructions provided to you by your physician or pharmacist while using Tazret (Tazarotene). Optimum and safe dosage can differ based on the patient and the condition being treated.
As this medication may be unsafe for certain patients, it is essential you always inform your physician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as if you have any allergies, other illnesses, or ongoing health conditions, and if you are taking any other form of medication, supplements, or herbal products.
