Step 1

Step 5

Use enough SORILUX Foam to cover the affected area with a thin layer. If you're applying it to your scalp, do so when your hair is dry. Part your hair and apply directly on the affected area. Gently rub the foam into the affected area until it disappears into the skin.

Step 6

Avoid getting SORILUX Foam on your face or in or near the eyes, mouth, or vagina. If it does get on your face or in or near your eyes, rinse with water.
Wash your hands after applying—unless, of course, your hands are a treated area.
