Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or to any excipient.

Avoid getting the preparation in the eyes and on the mucous membranes.

Safety and effectiveness for use of glycolic acid in children have not been established. Preparations with glycolic acid should therefore not be used for children.
