Topical Acne Products Can Cause Dangerous Side Effects

Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy & Medical Supplies Sacramento & #CompoundingPharmacySacramento wanted to pass this along…

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that the use of certain acne products containing the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid can cause rare but serious and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions or severe irritation. An active ingredient is the component that makes the medicine effective against the illness or condition it is treating.

The acne products the FDA is warning about are sold over-the-counter (OTC) and applied to the skin (topical). Their serious allergic reactions differ from the less harmful irritations already included in the product Drug Facts labels, which include burning, dryness, itching, peeling, redness, and slight swelling where the product is applied.  Read more http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm402441.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
