Tazorac Cream

Tazorac® (tazarotene) is a medicine approved for treating acne and plaque psoriasis. It comes in the following strengths and forms:
  • Tazorac 0.05% cream and gel (approved to treat psoriasis only)
  • Tazorac 0.1% cream and gel (approved to treat acne and psoriasis).
Both Tazorac cream and gel are applied to the affected areas once a day, in the evening. The medication may make the skin appear worse before it gets better. In some cases, the skin may become irritated, red, and flaky. However, this usually gets better with time, and clearer skin may start to appear within four weeks.
Tazorac may not be suitable for everyone. Before using the cream or gel, talk to your healthcare provider about the drug warnings that may apply to you, and tell him or her if you have eczema, a sunburn, or any allergies. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant.
