INTRODUCTION

ZEBOR GEL contains Azelaic acid which belongs to the group of medicines called Dicarboxylic acids. It is used to treat common acne (acne vulgaris). It is also used for the treatment of mild to moderate papulopustular rosacea.

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Rosacea is a skin condition that causes blushing or redness, pus-filled bumps and small visible blood vessels in the face.

ZEBOR GEL should be applied with caution in patients with lung problems such as asthma. Consult your doctor before applying it.

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before applying this medicine. Your doctor will decide whether you can use this medicine.

ZEBOR GEL is generally not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age for the treatment of acne and also not recommended for use in children under 18 years of age for the treatment of rosacea. Consult your doctor before applying it.

The most common side effects of applying ZEBOR GEL are burning, itching or redness of the skin (erythema) at the application site, scaling, pain, dryness, skin discolouration or irritation at the application site. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms worsen.

USES OF ZEBOR GEL

HOW ZEBOR GEL WORKS

ZEBOR GEL attacks the bacteria called propionibacterium acnes, which plays an essential part in causing acne. It also reduces growth of the harder outermost skin cells (keratin surface cells) that block the pores of the skin to cause blackheads and whiteheads.
