What is Poxiderm?
Poxiderm is a botanical product derived from the exudates of a tropical plant. The exudates contain a unique mixture of hundreds of phytochemicals, termed flavokine™, produced by the plant. Phytochemicals are naturally-occurring plant products with biologic activity.
Is Poxiderm safe for small children?
Flavokine™-containing products have been used on small children and have shown positive safety and efficacy results. As with any skin product, however, you should observe the skin for any potential reaction and store the product out of the reach of children.
What should I do if my child ingests Poxiderm?
Flavokine™ has been ingested in the past for other indications and has not been associated with any severe adverse reactions. Flavokine™ also has a very bitter taste and it is not expected that a child would want to swallow any of our products. If ingested, we recommend contacting your physician and having your child drink plenty of fluids.
How do I use the Poxiderm?
Poxiderm should be applied to the affected skin two to three times per day. One drop should be applied to each lesion and rubbed in gently with a fingertip until the color changes to white. This takes approximately 10-15 seconds, at which time the product will dry and fade into the skin. Until the liquid dries, it has the ability to stain clothing so we caution users not to bring it in contact with clothing. It does not stain the skin and you do not need to cover the treated area once the product has dried. The poxiderm is usually effective after 6 weeks of treatment although some patients may need to continue the treatment for up to 12 weeks.
