Exorex Lotion is indicated for the treatment of psoriasis of the skin and scalp. It contains coal tar solution as its active ingredient, which helps relieve and prevent itching and other symptoms associated with psoriasis.

Use and Dosage

Use exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Apply coal tar cream, lotion, ointment, or solution according to the directions on the medication label. Some forms of coal tar may be applied 1 to 4 times per day.

To use coal tar bath oil, pour 1 to 3 capfuls into a warm bath before bathing. The oil can make the bathtub slippery. Take care to avoid falling.

Shake the coal tar shampoo well just before each use. Use enough shampoo to create a rich lather. Massage the shampoo into your scalp and rinse thoroughly. Apply the shampoo a second time and leave it on your scalp for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Coal tar shampoo may discolor blond or colored hair. This effect is usually temporary.

Do not use coal tar to treat large skin areas. Do not use coal tar over long periods without your doctor’s advice.

Some forms of coal tar can stain fabric or other surfaces.

Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse while using coal tar topical.

Side Effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Serious side effects include:

  • Severe stinging, burning, swelling, or other irritation of the treated skin

Common side effects may include:

  • Mild skin irritation or skin rash

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur.


  • Do not use coal tar products, including Exorex Lotion, on your face, around your bottom, on your genitals, or on broken or infected skin. These areas are more sensitive and may react differently to the medication.
  • Coal tar products may contain ingredients such as lanolin, mineral oil, or other emulsifiers. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, check the label and speak to a pharmacist or doctor before using Exorex Lotion.
  • In rare cases, a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) to coal tar can occur. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms such as swollen lips, mouth, throat, or tongue, difficulty breathing, or tightness in the throat.
  • While most coal tar products, including Exorex Lotion, are generally safe and well-tolerated, some individuals may experience side effects. These can include a severe stinging or burning feeling on the skin, swelling, or worsening of psoriasis. If you experience any bothersome side effects that persist for more than a few days, speak to a doctor or pharmacist for further guidance.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since coal tar topical is used when needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are on a schedule, use the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up for the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

An overdose of coal tar topical is not expected to be dangerous. Seek emergency medical attention if anyone has accidentally swallowed the medication.

What should I avoid while using coal tar?

Do not use coal tar together with other psoriasis medications unless your doctor tells you to.

Avoid getting coal tar topical in your eyes. If this does occur, rinse with water.

Do not use coal tar to treat the skin of your groin or rectal area.

Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). Coal tar can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result.
