Exorex Lotion is for external use only and care should be taken when using on the face, around the eyes, or near other mucous membranes.
If Exorex is ingested it may require gastric lavage, depending on the quantity involved. If it accidentally enters the eyes, immediately flush it out with clean water or saline solution. Keep it away from children.
The coal tar content may cause skin irritation in some people. If this is the case, ask your doctor to review the treatment and discontinue usage, if necessary. If you have a hypersensitivity to any of the above-listed ingredients, avoid using this lotion and seek an alternative treatment.
Coal tar heightens sensitivity to sunlight. If you have a disease characterised by photosensitivity (such as lupus erythematosus) or an allergy to sunlight, avoid using this lotion.
Hydrogenated polyoxyl castor oil and propyl and methyl hydroxybenzoates may also cause irritation or allergic reactions (these might be delayed).
Do not apply to broken skin with ‘weeping’ wounds or where the skin is clearly infected. Also, do not apply to rectal or anal areas.
Breastfeeding or pregnant women should generally use this lotion only intermittently, in low concentration, on a limited percentage of the body. Avoid using it at all during the first trimester. Do not apply to the breasts before feeding your baby.
