Finacea® (azelaic acid) Foam, 15% is indicated for the topical treatment of inflammatory papules and pustules of mild to moderate rosacea.
For topical use only. Finacea Foam is not for oral, ophthalmic or intravaginal use.
Before applying Finacea Foam, cleanse affected area(s) using only very mild soaps or soapless cleansing lotion and pat dry with a soft towel.
Apply a thin layer of Finacea Foam twice daily (morning and evening) to the entire facial area (cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose). Wash hands immediately after application.
Avoid the use of occlusive dressings or wrappings at the application site. Avoid use of alcoholic cleansers, tinctures and astringents, abrasives and peeling agents.
Patients should be reassessed if no improvement is observed upon completing 12 weeks of therapy.
Pregnancy: Azelaic acid is minimally absorbed systemically following topical route of administration, and maternal use is not expected to result in fetal exposure to the drug.
Lactation: Azelaic acid is naturally present in human milk. When used as prescribed, azelaic acid is unlikely to be absorbed through the skin in clinically relevant amounts to cause a change in azelaic acid concentration in milk or milk production; therefore, breastfeeding is not expected to result in exposure of the infant to Finacea Foam.
Pediatric Use: The safety and efficacy of Finacea Foam have not been established in pediatric patients.
