Atoin C Gel is a combination of two medicines, used to treat
acne, which appears as spots or pimples on your face, chest or back. This
medicine works by attacking the germs that cause them and rejuvenates sun
Atoin C Gel is only meant for external use and should be used
as advised by your doctor. You should normally wash and dry the affected area
before applying a thin layer of the medicine. It should not be applied to
broken or damaged skin. Avoid contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it
off with water if you accidentally get it in these areas. It may take several
weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine
regularly. Do not stop using it as soon as your acne starts to get better. Ask
your doctor when you should stop treatment.
Side effects like burning sensation, irritation, itching,
redness, dryness, skin peeling or skin inflammation (dermatitis) may be seen at
the application site, in some people. These are usually temporary and resolve
on their own. Consult your doctor if they bother you or do not go away.
It is a safe medicine, but you should inform your doctor if
you have any problems with your bowels (intestines), if you have ever had
bloody diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics or if you are using any other
medicines to treat skin conditions. Consult your doctor about using this
medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
