People who have had allergic reactions or an extreme sensitivity to collagenase may not be able to use it. Collagenase may increase the risk of bacteremia, a bacterial infection of the blood. A doctor should be consulted if a person using collagenase develops signs of infection, and these people may need to discontinue use.
