I am using veregen (sinecatechins) for EGW. Am I supposed to clean off all the white wax between days of applications - and how? It is hard to remove.
Veregen (sinecatechins): Not being preachy but just sayin' if you ever have questions about your medications, ask your prescribing doctor & dispensing pharmacist. Failing that, there's always HealthTap, right? So check out http://www.drugs.com/veregen.html for info. Specifically, it states "Do not wash off the ointment before applying your next dose. Reapply the ointment after you swim, bathe, or shower." Hope this helps! ...Read more

Why ?: Studies during development showed that the body was very tolerant to loratadine, with no significant side effects at twice the recommended dosage.
