This sensitization usually leads to hypersensitivity reactions which could be serious (see 4.8 Undesirable effects).It is recommended to assess clinically the possible sensitization of individuals at risk and, if justified, to perform specific diagnostic tests.In case of proven sensitization leading to hypersensitivity reactions, exposure to the product should be stopped immediately and avoided in the future (see 4.3 Contraindications).”

As a consequence to this allergic potential, individuals exposed to the product can develop hypersensitivity reactions such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis, bronchospasm and in some cases, anaphylaxia. Cutaneous symptoms as exanthema and/or pruritus have also been reported. Special attention should be given to individuals manipulating the powder formulations routinely (see 4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use).
