Tazarotene Foam Side Effects

Some people who use tazarotene foam to treat acne may develop reactions with this medication. Some of the most common side effects of tazarotene foam include skin reactions at the application site, such as redness, dryness, or peeling. While reactions such as these are generally minor, potentially serious problems can occur, including unexplained swelling and skin reactions that do not improve within a month.
