How can I safely apply Finacea?

You should only apply Finacea to the affected areas. Avoid getting it in your eyes, nose, mouth, rectum or vagina. You should not put it on skin that’s sunburned, wind-burned, dry, chapped, irritated or broken. Instead, wait until these conditions have healed. Once you apply Finacea, don’t cover the area. This may make you absorb too much medicine. This can be dangerous. If you have excessive burning, dryness or irritation, tell your doctor. He or she may have you use Finacea only once daily.
