Azelaic acid cream is employed for addressing acne-related pimples and inflammation. Belonging to the dicarboxylic acids category of medications, azelaic acid mitigates rosacea symptoms by reducing skin swelling and redness. Its efficacy against acne lies in its dual action of eradicating bacteria within pores and diminishing the production of keratin, a natural substance that contributes to acne formation.

Uses and Dosage

Azelaic acid is available in gel, foam, and cream formulations for topical application on the skin. Typically, it is recommended to be applied twice daily—once in the morning and once in the evening. Consistency in timing is advised for optimal results.

Use azelaic acid precisely as directed, avoiding deviations in dosage or frequency without medical guidance.

Exercise caution to prevent contact with your eyes or mouth, and in case of accidental exposure to the eyes, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical advice if irritation persists.

Note that azelaic acid foam is flammable. During application and for a brief period thereafter, avoid proximity to open flames, fire, and refrain from smoking.
