About ADIFF GEL 15GM

ADIFF GEL 15GM belongs to the class of dermatological preparations called ‘antiacne’ used to treat acne (pimples) in patients 12 years or older. Acne is a common skin condition and occurs when hair follicles are blocked with dead skin cells and oil. The acne-causing bacteria feeds on sebum (natural oil produced by skin) causing redness and swelling.

ADIFF GEL 15GM contains Adapalene that belongs to the class of retinoids (human-made vitamin A). It works by loosening the cells on the skin’s surface and unblocks pores by reducing oil production in the skin. Thereby, decreases pimples, whiteheads and blackheads.

ADIFF GEL 15GM is only for external use and should be applied on the skin surface only. Take a small amount of ADIFF GEL 15GM on fingertips and apply as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of ADIFF GEL 15GM with nose, ears, mouth or eyes. In case ADIFF GEL 15GM comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with warm water thoroughly. Your doctor will advise you how often you take ADIFF GEL 15GM based on your medical condition. You may experience dry skin, irritation, redness or burning sensation of the skin in some cases. Most of these side effects of ADIFF GEL 15GM do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to ADIFF GEL 15GM or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Do not apply ADIFF GEL 15GM on cuts, open wounds, scrapes, sunburned, windburned, chapped, dry or irritated skin. Avoid exposure to tanning beds or sunlight while using ADIFF GEL 15GM as it may make the skin more sensitive to sunlight and cause sunburn. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen while going out to protect your skin from sunburn. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor before taking ADIFF GEL 15GM. Do not apply ADIFF GEL 15GM in large amounts or use for a long time than prescribed as it does not give quick or better results but increases the risk of side effects such as irritation, scaling or redness of the skin. If you have eczema (itchy, swollen, rough and cracked skin) or sunburned skin, please inform your doctor before taking ADIFF GEL 15GM.
