USES: This medication is used on the skin to treat sun-induced skin growths.
HOW TO USE: This medication is for use on the skin only. Clean and dry the affected area as directed. Then apply a small amount of the medication on the skin. A thin layer is all that is needed. Massage the medication in gently. Wash hands after use. Do not use large amounts, apply this more often or use this for a longer period than directed. Your condition will not clear faster, but the chance for side effects may be increased. Use carefully if applying to the face. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose and mouth.
