FAQs

Q. How should Paknet be applied?

You should remove all of the make-up. Wash your hands and the affected area and gently dry. Put a thin layer of Paknet cream on the affected skin, using your fingertips. Apply it to the entire area affected with acne, not just each spot. After applying, wash your hands thoroughly with water.

Q. Should Paknet be left on overnight?

At the beginning of the treatment, Paknet is usually used once daily in the evening. The area is not washed off after application of Paknet, so it can be left overnight unless you experience irritation. In that case consult your doctor.

Q. What should prompt me to discontinue Paknet?

You should discontinue Paknet and consult your doctor if you experience severe local irritation, which means severe redness, severe dryness and itching, and severe stinging/burning sensation.

Q. What precautions should be followed while applying Paknet?

Use Paknet only on your skin. Keep it away from areas like your eyes, eyelids, lips, mouth and inside of the nose. If the medicine comes in contact with any of these areas, wash the affected area with water immediately. Avoid using Paknet on scratched or eroded skin and open wounds. Take care when using Paknet on sensitive areas of skin such as your neck. Paknet can make your skin more sensitive to the harmful effects of the sun. So, avoid the use of sunbeds/lamps and minimize the time you spend in the sun. You should use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing while using Paknet. Avoid contact with hair as Paknet has bleaching properties. It can even bleach dyed or colored fabric, furniture or carpeting.

Q. How often should I apply Paknet?

The initial dose is preferably once daily in the evening. Later, the doctor will gradually increase the dose to twice daily (most probably morning and evening).

Q. How long does Paknet take to show its effects?

You may see an improvement after 4-6 weeks of treatment. You may need to use this treatment for longer to see the full benefits. This is normal for acne treatments. If your acne does not get better after 6 to 8 weeks or if it gets worse, talk to your doctor immediately.

Q. Do you apply moisturizer before or after Paknet?

You may apply moisturizer an hour after applying Paknet. Consult your doctor in case of any doubt or concern.
