Description of Epiquin Micro

Some of the other ingredients present in the drug include ascorbyl palmitate, ascorbic acid, benzyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, methylparaben, retinol, triethanolamine, tocopheryl acetate, water, and propyl gallate and sodium metabislfite. Do not use Epiquin Micro if you have an allergy to any of these ingredients.
Indications & Dosage of Epiquin Micro
Epiquin Micro is a topical application used to lighten darkened skin areas due to age spots, freckles, chloasma or melasma. These may be results of a skin injury, pregnancy, birth control pills or hormonal medicines. The drug works by reducing the formation of melanin in the skin, which gives a brownish color to the patient’s skin.
Epiquin Micro is for external use only, and should not be ingested. Always wash your hands before and after applying Epiquin Micro on your affected area. Your doctor will usually advise you to apply it one or two times a day. Using more of the drug than needed may lead to severe dryness or irritation of your skin. Therefore, use it exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Cover the skin with the medicine, rub it in gently and then leave it on. Avoid rinsing the area with water, and do not wash it after applying Epiquin Micro.
Side Effects & Interactions of Epiquin Micro
Mild burning, redness, itching, irritation or stinging can commonly occur after application of Epiquin Micro. These side effects are temporary and last only for a few minutes. Inform your doctor at once if any of these worsen or persist. Some of the serious side effects associated with Epiquin Micro include blue-black darkening of the skin, blistering, or skin cracking.
Some patients may develop an allergic reaction after applying Epiquin Micro. Symptoms of an allergy include hives, severe dizziness, facial swelling or difficulty breathing. Stop applying the drug at once if you develop any of these symptoms. Seek medical attention immediately if needed.
Before you buy Epiquin Micro, you should inform your doctor about all the prescription and non-prescription drugs you are using at present, especially topical applications. Also do not use any harsh shampoos, soaps, hair colors, waxes, permanent chemicals, hair removers, skin cleansers or any products containing astringents, lime, alcohol or spices.
Warnings & Precautions of Epiquin Micro
Do not apply Epiquin Micro on windburned, chapped, dry, irritated or sunburned skin. Also do not use it on open wounds, as severe irritation may occur. Let these conditions subside before you start treatment with Epiquin Micro.
Before starting the treatment, you should inform your doctor if you have a liver or kidney disease. Special tests may need to be conducted before you can start applying Epiquin Micro.
Do not allow Epiquin Micro to enter your eyes, ears, nose or mouth, as severe irritation may occur. Rinse the area thoroughly with water if this happens. As the drug increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, avoid being exposed to sunlamps, tanning beds or any other sources of artificial UV light. Do not forget to apply a sunscreen and wear protective clothes before going out.
Pregnant women should not use Epiquin Micro, as it may harm the unborn child.
