Fabior Side Effects

A few of the common side effects of Fabior include reactions at the application site, such as dryness, redness, or irritation of the skin. Although these side effects are not usually dangerous and are typically easy to treat, the medication can cause potentially serious complications. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you develop serious side effects, such as severe skin reactions or breathing problems.

An Introduction to Fabior Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Fabior® (tazarotene foam) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses this product will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Fabior. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of Fabior

Fabior has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects of Fabior foam were carefully recorded and compared to reactions that occurred in a group of people given a foam that did not contain any active ingredients (a placebo). This allowed researchers to determine which problems were true side effects and which were simply coincidental.
In these studies, the most common Fabior side effects occurred at the application site (where the medication was applied) and included:
  • Irritation -- in up to 14 percent of people
  • Dryness -- up to 7 percent
  • Redness -- up to 6 percent
  • Peeling and flaking -- up to 6 percent.
Other common side effects, occurring in at least 1 percent of people, included:
  • Sensitivity to the sun (burning more easily)
  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Dermatitis.
