My doctor provided me with a script for skinoren azelaic acid 20%. Why does it say do not use after 6 months?
On the box, it says do not use after 6 months of use. Online, I find that information too. My doctor say it's fine. Any information?
There are a couple of issues here: 1) The safety of use has not been proven beyond 6 months and 2) Prolonged use may lead to hair growth and bleaching of the skin. You should contact your doctor for further concerns. Thanks!
