INTRODUCTION

ACNEDAP PLUS contains a combination of Adapalene and Dapsone, which belongs to the group of medicines called topical retinoids and sulfonamide antibiotics. It is used in the treatment of skin acne. Acne is a condition of the skin when the root of your hair (hair follicle) or skin pores gets clogged by oil or dead skin, which becomes prone to bacterial infection resulting in pimples, blackheads and spots or scars.

Adapalene is a form of vitamin A (retinoid) that acts as an antiacne agent by binding directly to the receptors of the skin which increases the rate of cell regeneration and decreases oil secretion preventing clogging of the hair follicles and pores. It also reduces swelling and inflammation. Dapsone is an antibiotic with a structure similar to PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) that kills bacteria by competitively substituting PABA, a nutrient that bacteria use to generate folic acid for growth and survival. Before recommending ACNEDAP PLUS, your doctor may advise you to have tests to understand your existing condition for planning effective treatment methods. Stay well hydrated and protect your skin from exposure to sunlight or UV light.
