Skin Home > Picato Drug Interactions

Picato® (ingenol mebutate) appears to be unlikely to interact with other medications. It is reasonable to expect that it might, at least theoretically, react with other skin medications, especially ones that are harsh or could cause irritation. In most cases, Picato causes skin reactions, which can vary from redness to severe open sores. Choose gentle skincare products while using this medication.
 
As a precaution, it is recommended to avoid using Picato in combination with other actinic keratosis medications. Do not start Picato until your skin has healed from any other procedure or medications.
 
Picato drug interactions may be discovered at a later date. Therefore, it is always a good idea to include Picato in your list of medications when checking for any interactions. Also, make sure to check with your healthcare provider about possible interactions that may apply to you.
