When and How to Take Solaraze Gel

Some general considerations include the following:
 
  • Solaraze Gel is usually applied to the skin twice a day for 60 to 90 days. It should be noted that continued improvement may occur for up to 30 days after the medication is stopped.
     
  • Do not apply a bandage or dressing over the gel.
     
  • Wash your hands after applying the gel, unless you are treating your hands.
     
  • Do not use lotions, cosmetics, insect repellants, or any other products on the skin where you apply the gel.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Make sure to use it for the full 60 or 90 days that your healthcare provider recommends.
     

Dosing Information
