Less common

  • Pain, redness, swelling, or other sign of irritation not present before use of this medicine
Side effects not requiring immediate medical attention

Some side effects of tetracycline topical may occur that usually do not need medical attention. These side effects may go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. Also, your health care professional may be able to tell you about ways to prevent or reduce some of these side effects.

More common

  • Dry or scaly skin
  • stinging or burning feeling

For cream and topical liquid forms only

  • Faint yellowing of the skin, especially around hair roots

For Healthcare Professionals

Applies to tetracycline topical: topical ointment, topical solution


Dermatitis has been reported rarely with topical application of tetracycline. One-third of patients may experience a stinging and burning sensation lasting no more than a few minutes. A faint yellowing of the skin has been reported, especially around the hair roots.


Tetracycline topical is generally well tolerated. Side effects reported with systemic administered tetracycline such as gastrointestinal complaints, vaginitis, hematologic abnormalities, dental, and skeletal disorders have not been reported and are unlikely to occur with topical administration.
