Sumadan (sulfacetamide sodium / sulfur)

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

  • Product Details


    Sumadan is a prescription medication specifically formulated for the treatment of acne. It is a topical gel that combines multiple active ingredients to target the underlying causes of acne and improve the skin's overall appearance. Acne is a skin condition that occurs most commonly in children and young adults.

    Sumadan contains a combination of sulfacetamide and sulfur. Sulfacetamide is an antibacterial agent that helps reduce the growth of acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Sulfur has both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to reduce redness and swelling associated with acne.


    A thin layer of Sumadan should be applied once or twice daily, as directed by a healthcare professional.

    To use Sumadan, thoroughly cleanse the affected areas of the skin and gently dry it before applying the gel.

    Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, and other mucous membranes. In case of accidental contact, rinse thoroughly with water.


    Sumadan contains sulfacetamide sodium (10%) and sulfur (5%). These ingredients work synergistically to combat acne.

    The gel formulation also incorporates other inactive ingredients to ensure proper stability and effectiveness.

    Do not use this medication if you are allergic to any of the active or inactive ingredients.


    There are no known significant interactions.


    Before using Sumadan, tell your doctor about any allergies or medical conditions. Additionally, disclose any other medications or skincare products you use.

    While Sumadan is generally safe and well-tolerated, some individuals may experience mild skin irritation, dryness, or peeling. These side effects are usually temporary and diminish as the skin adjusts to the medication. If severe skin irritation or an allergic reaction occurs, discontinue use and seek medical attention.
