"Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a proposed order that, if finalized, would reclassify sunlamp products and require labeling to include a recommendation designed to warn young people not to use these devices.



Melquin-3 Topical Solution



There have been no systemic reactions reported from the used of topical hydroquinone treatment. However, treatment should be limited to relatively small areas of the body at one time since some patients may experience a transient skin reddening and a mild burning sensation which does not preclude treatment.


ALPHAQUIN HP 4% CREAM, NUQUIN HP 4% CREAM, NUQUIN HP 4% GEL, MELPAQUE HP 4% CREAM, MELQUIN HP 4% CREAM and MELQUIN-3 TOPICAL SOLUTION (hydroquinone 3% topical solution) are contraindicated in persons who have shown hypersensitivity to hydroquinone or any of the other ingredients. The safety of topical treatment of hydroquinone during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established. (See PRECAUTIONS).

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
