What is Azelex Cream (azelaic acid)?

Azelex Cream (azelaic acid) is a prescription topical medicine used to treat skin conditions like inflammatory acne and rosacea. Azelex is from a class of drugs known as topical acne agents. Azelex contains azelaic acid, a naturally occurring saturated dicarboxylic acid. Azelex works by helping the skin renew itself at a faster rate, reducing blackhead and pimple formation. Azelaic acid also contributes to killing harmful bacteria that lead to acne and rosacea.

FAQs

What other drugs will likely affect Azelex Cream?

Because Azelex Cream is applied topically, it is not likely another orally or injected drug will interact with azelaic acid. However, other topical medications or herbal products may reduce this drug’s effectiveness. Isotretinoin is known to interact with Azelex, but other medications may also cause unwanted side effects. Ask your doctor for a comprehensive list of Azelex drug interactions, and always disclose the medications you are taking before starting treatment.

What are some risks associated with applying azelaic acid?

When treating skin conditions with Azelex Cream, it is important to monitor for early signs of hypopigmentation, which involves patches of the skin becoming lighter than your overall skin tone. Some have reported hypopigmentation after the use of azelaic acid. Studies have not been done on the effect of azelaic acid on patients with darker complexions.

What should I do if I experience side effects of Azelex Cream?

Most side effects do not require urgent medical care. These include temporary stinging, flaky skin, and tingling or itching. However, if you experience severe swelling in your face, lips, tongue, or throat, or if you experience difficulty breathing, contact your doctor right away. Speak with your healthcare provider for more tips on how you should handle the side effects of Azelex Cream.
