Benzac AC 5% Water Base Gel 15g


BENZAC AC 5 is indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris

It contains benzoyl peroxide which is an oxidizing agent which possesses antibacterial properties and is classified as a keratolytic.

Dosage/Direction for Use

Benzac AC 5 should be applied once or twice daily to cover affected areas after washing with a mild cleanser and water.

Benzoyl peroxide gel or lotions are preparations indicated for topical treatment only. If the medication is applied excessively, no more rapid or better results will be obtained and severe irritation might develop. In this event, treatment must be discontinued and appropriate symptomatic therapy should be instituted. If excessive scaling, erythema or edema occurs, the use of this preparation should be discontinued. To hasten resolution of the adverse effects, cool compresses may be used. After symptoms and signs subside, a reduced dosage schedule may be cautiously tried if the reaction is judged to be due to excessive use and not allergenicity.

Special Precautions

General: For external use only. If severe irritation develops discontinue use and institute appropriate therapy. After the reaction clears, treatment may often be resumed with less frequent application. These preparations should not be used in or near the eyes or on mucous membranes.

Information for Patients: A mild burning sensation will probably be felt on first application and some reddening and peeling of the skin will occur within a few days. During the first weeks of treatment a sudden increase in peeling will occur in most patients. This is not harmful and will normally subside within a day or two if treatment is temporarily discontinued. If severe irritation occurs, patients should be directed to use the medication less frequently, to temporarily discontinue use or to discontinue use altogether.

Avoid contact with eyes, eyelids, mouths and mucous membranes. If accidental contact occurs, rinse with water. Contact with any colored material (including hair and fabric) may result in bleaching or discoloration. If excessive irritation develops, discontinue use and consult the physician. May contain benzoic acid as a degradation product of benzoyl peroxide.

Repeated exposure to sunlight or UV radiation should be avoided.

Due to the risk of sensitisation, benzoyl peroxide gel or lotion should not be applied on damaged skin.
