Introduction

Q ON Lotion is a medicine used in the treatment of vitiligo and psoriasis. It reduces the overproduction of skin cells and helps to repigment the discolored, white patches.

Q ON Lotion is for external use only. Use It only under the direct supervision of your doctor. The affected area should be clean and dry before application. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as it will not clear your condition faster and some side effects may be increased. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. You can help this medicine work better by keeping the affected areas clean.

Common side effects include burning, itching, irritation, and redness at the site of injection. It may also cause blisters on your skin. Please consult your doctor if these side effects persist for a longer duration. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In case of accidental contact, wash your eyes with plenty of water and seek immediate medical attention.

Application of Q ON Lotion can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. Avoid exposure to sunlight. Use sunscreens and cover yourself with protective clothing for at least 8 hours after treatment. Avoid eating certain foods like limes, figs, parsley, parsnips, mustard, carrots, and celery, as they may increase the skin's sensitivity to light.

Uses of Q ON Lotion

Benefits of Q ON Lotion

In Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a condition in which the ski loses its natural color in patches. Q ON Lotion effectively blocks that process in the skin that leads to discoloration. It also reduces any redness, rash, pain or itchiness that may be caused in this condition. This improves your self-esteem and confidence as your appearance changes. You should always use it as prescribed to get the full benefits.

In Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a condition where the skin cells in the body grow too quickly and form scales and dry patches. They can grow anywhere, but most appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Q ON Lotion reduces the scaly, itchy patches along with other symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling or irritation which may develop on the different parts of the body. Use it for as long as it is prescribed to get the most benefit. It may take several months to become fully effective. You should avoid drinking alcohol while having this treatment and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Quick Tips

  • Trioxsalen is a very strong medicine that increases your skin sensitivity to sunlight. Do not use it for sun tanning or to increase tolerance to sunlight; if doing so, do not use trioxsalen for more than 14 days.
  • Take this treatment (trioxsalen and UVA) two or three times a week with the treatment spaced at least forty-eight hours apart.  
  • Take this medication by mouth with food or milk, usually 2 to 4 hours before your UVA light treatment.
  • Do not sunbathe for 24 hours before taking trioxsalen.  Wear UVA-absorbing, wrap-around sunglasses and cover exposed skin or use a sunblock (SP 15 or higher) for the twenty-four (24) hour period following treatment with trioxsalen.
  • Use extra caution for at least 48 hours following each treatment.  After each treatment, cover your skin for at least 8 hours by wearing protective clothing.
  • Do not increase the amount of trioxsalen if you are taking or spend extra time in the sunlight or under an ultraviolet lamp.
  • Do not drive or operate machinery as trioxsalen may cause dizziness.
  • You will need to have an eye examination before starting trioxsalen and also once a year thereafter.
  • Be careful before applying anything to your skin to treat dryness and itchiness caused by trioxsalen.
  • Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
