What should I avoid while using Acnotex (sulfur topical)?

Do not use sulfur topical on sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, or irritated skin or on open wounds.

Avoid using other topical products on the same area unless otherwise directed to do so by your doctor. They may interfere with the effects or absorption of sulfur topical.

Do not cover the area after applying sulfur topical, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Doing so could cause too much medicine to be absorbed by your body and could be harmful.

Avoid using harsh, abrasive or irritating cleansers, perfumes or cosmetics on the area you are treating.
