What should I avoid while using benzoyl peroxide and urea topical (Zoderm)?

Do not use benzoyl peroxide and urea topical on sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, or irritated skin. It could make these conditions worse. Also avoid using benzoyl peroxide and urea topical on wounds or on areas of eczema. Wait until these conditions have healed before using this medication.

Avoid using harsh, abrasive, or irritating cleansers, perfumes, or cosmetics on the area being treated.

Avoid contact with clothing and hair. Benzoyl peroxide may cause bleaching.

Benzoyl peroxide and urea topical may increase the sensitivity of the skin to sunlight. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or artificial UV light (e.g., sunlamps). Use a sunscreen on treated areas while using benzoyl peroxide and urea topical.

Avoid combining sunscreen containing PABA and benzoyl peroxide. Temporary skin discoloration may occur if they are used together.
