Description of Benzamycin Gel

Benzamycin Gel is used to treat severe acne. The generic name of the drug is Benzoyl Peroxide/Erythromycin.

You must buy Benzamycin Gel only as directed by the doctor. Before using the gel, wash and rinse your face with warm water. Dry your face with a towel.

Indications & Dosage of Benzamycin Gel

Benzamycin Gel contains a combination of two drugs- one is a macrolide antibiotic and the other is a keratolytic (drying) agent that has antibacterial properties. It slows down the growth of bacteria that cause acne.

If you are using any other topical applications on your face, use them only after one hour after applying Benzamycin Gel. While using the gel, make sure that all your cosmetics are water-based only. The results will be seen in 3-8 weeks time. If you don’t find any improvement after 12 weeks, consult your doctor. To get the best results, use the gel daily.
