If Sebulex comes in contact with the eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes. If Sebulex is ingested, contact a poison control center or seek medical attention immediately. Sebulex should not be used on an open wound, warts, moles, birthmarks or skin that is infected or irritated. Avoid directly inhaling the vapors from the shampoo. People with certain medical conditions, including liver or kidney disorders, skin conditions, such as eczema, diabetes and abnormal blood circulation, should discuss Sebulex with their doctor. People who are allergic to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or aspirin should use Sebulex with caution. Sebulex contains salicylic acid which has been associated with Reye's syndrome, a potentially deadly condition for teenagers and children. Young people with chicken pox, the flu or other viral infections, should not use Sebulex without approval from their doctor. Sebulex is flammable and should not be stored or used near an open flame. It can affect the results of some lab tests. Let your doctor know if you are using Sebulex prior to medical tests. Children may be more sensitive to the effects of Sebulex, and those under two years of age should use it with extreme caution. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should discuss the risks and benefits of using Sebulex with their doctor. Overuse of Sebulex can worsen skin conditions.
