Tazarotene is a medication that works to treat conditions like plaque psoriasis. The drug slows down skin cell production, which helps reduce the buildup of psoriasis plaques and eases inflammation in your skin. Tazarotene has been shown to be effective in treating plaque psoriasis in clinical studies, and it is recommended as a treatment option by the American Academy of Dermatology. It is available as a cream, foam, or gel to apply to the skin.
Tazarotene belongs to a group of medications called retinoids, which are similar to vitamin A. It is also used to treat other skin conditions like acne and signs and symptoms of premature aging of the face. It appears to help reduce acne by causing the skin to renew itself more quickly and improve the appearance of skin pores. It may also help to reduce fine wrinkles and dark spots on the face, but only if it is used correctly and not applied too much.
Before you buy tazarotene, talk to your doctor about your medical history. This includes any allergies you have, including to other medications and foods. It is important to tell your doctor about any other conditions you have as well, such as eczema and sun sensitivity. Tazarotene can make you more sensitive to sunlight, so it’s a good idea to limit your time in the sun or wear protective clothing.
