While allergic reactions are rare stop using and seek medical help if you experience: difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the face, tongue or throat, skin irritation or rash. Do not use in or around the eyes, on broken skin, for weeping skin conditions or if you are sensitive to any of the ingredients.

Fabric such as clothing, bedding and dressings that have been in contact with this product burn more easily and can be a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but will not totally remove it.
