What should I avoid while using selenium sulfide?

Selenium sulfide may interact with other topical medications, so you should talk to your doctor before using any other topical medication while using selenium sulfide. You should also avoid getting selenium sulfide in your mouth, eyes, nose, vagina, or rectum. If this occurs, flush the area with water. Avoid putting selenium sulfide on broken, burned, dry, or blistered skin. Also, avoid wearing tight-fitting clothing over treated skin.
