About Aczone Medications


Aczone is prescribed for acne treatment to reduce the number and severity of pimples, as well as to expedite the healing process of existing pimples. Dapsone, an antibiotic, is the active ingredient, although its exact mechanism in treating acne is not fully understood.

How to Use:

Before using dapsone, it is recommended to review the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist. Wash your hands before and after applying the medication. Clean the affected skin gently with a mild or soapless cleanser and pat dry. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance.

Apply a small amount of medication, approximately equivalent to the size of a pea, thinly to the affected skin areas as prescribed by your physician. Depending on your specific product, Aczone is typically applied once or twice daily. Gently massage it into the skin, taking care to avoid the eye and lip region.

Use Aczone exclusively on the skin. Refrain from applying it inside the mouth or nose, or in the groin/vaginal area. Prevent contact with the eyes; in case of accidental exposure, rinse with copious amounts of water and seek medical advice if eye irritation ensues. Remember to wash your hands after application to prevent inadvertent contact with the eyes.

For optimal results, it is recommended to use this product regularly. Remember to apply it at consistent times daily to enhance its effectiveness. Avoid exceeding the prescribed amount or frequency of use, as it will not expedite skin improvement and may increase the likelihood of experiencing side effects. Notify your doctor if there is no improvement in your condition or if it deteriorates after 12 weeks.


Possible side effects include skin redness, peeling, increased oiliness, or dryness. Should any of these symptoms persist or worsen, seek immediate medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep in mind that your healthcare provider has recommended Aczone to you based on their assessment that the potential advantages outweigh the potential risks of side effects. The majority of individuals who use Aczone do not experience severe side effects. Inform your doctor promptly if you encounter any severe side effects, such as changes in mental state or mood (like depression or agitation), unusual fatigue or weakness, dark-colored urine, or difficulty breathing. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience any highly severe side effects, such as bluish or grayish lips or nails.

It is uncommon to experience a severe allergic response to Aczone. Nonetheless, seek immediate medical assistance if you observe any signs of a grave allergic reaction, such as rash, itchiness, or swelling (particularly of the face, tongue, or throat), severe lightheadedness, or difficulty breathing.


Prior to using Aczone, inform your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you are sensitive to dapsone or have any other allergies. Aczone may contain inert components that could trigger allergic reactions or other complications. Consult your pharmacist for additional information.

Prior to taking Aczone, inform your doctor or pharmacist about your medical background, specifically mentioning any instances of a particular enzyme deficiency (G6PD deficiency) or a specific blood disorder (methemoglobinemia).

Before undergoing any surgical procedure, inform your doctor or dentist about all medications you are using, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, and herbal products.

If you are pregnant, Aczone should only be used if it is absolutely necessary. Have a discussion with your doctor about the potential risks and benefits.

Dapsone can enter breast milk, so consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
