What is the maximum daily dosage for azelaic acid topical gel or cream?

Azelaic acid topical cream or gel is usually applied once in the morning and once in the evening. Try to apply the treatment at the same time of day to make it easier to remember. If you miss a dose, try to apply it as soon as you can, unless it is nearly time for your next treatment. Do not double the dose, and do not use azelaic topical more than twice a day unless directed. Overuse of the medication can lead to irritation and inflammation of the face.
