Reporting of suspected adverse reactions Reporting of suspected adverse reactions that occur after authorization of the medicinal product is important, as it allows continuous monitoring of the benefit/risk balance of the medicinal product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via the national reporting system at http://www.aifa.gov.it/content/segnalazioni-reazioni-avverse.
The product is for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, brain, meninges and middle ear and use on severely damaged skin. The product must not be used for prolonged treatments: after a short period of treatment without appreciable results, medical evaluation is necessary. The use, especially if prolonged, of products for topical use can also give rise to sensitization phenomena, in which case it is necessary to interrupt the treatment and carry out a clinical evaluation. Accidental ingestion or inhalation of some disinfectants can have serious, sometimes fatal, consequences. Exposure to ultraviolet rays (sun or artificial sources) after applying the product must be avoided.
