INDICATIONS: Antiperspirant for treatment of severe hyperhidrosis and bromidrosis. Drying agent for verrucae. Drying agent for postsurgical removal of warts or for nonsurgical laser treatment of warts.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Formaldehyde (20% of U.S.P. strength)
DESCRIPTION: A tinted aqueous perfumed base provides a preferable vehicle for the topical application of Formalin solution to relieve severe conditions of bromidrosis and hyperhidrosis. This formula is double the strength of Formadon. Formalin solution dries the skin’s surface, and makes a very good drying agent after surgery or laser treatment.
PHARMACOLOGY: Formalin, a solution of Formaldehyde, has been extensively used as a drying agent as well as a disinfectant. Direct topical application of Formalin solution has been an extremely useful way of dealing with odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin. The elimination of hyperhidrosis is of paramount importance in reducing bacteria associated with odor and wetness. Formalin, in drying the skin surface, reduces bacterial flora which can thrive in moisture.
