Treating Acne With Benzamycin Gel

Benzamycin® (erythromycin/benzoyl peroxide) is a medicine used to treat acne in adults and adolescents. This medication is only available with a prescription and is approved for use in children as young as 12 years old. It is typically used no more than twice daily, in the morning and evening.
 
For treating acne, Benzamycin gel works by killing acne-causing bacteria. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, it is not suitable for everyone. For example, people who have eczema or a sunburn may not be able to use Benzamycin.
 
Also, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and nonprescription medicines), as well as any other medical conditions you may have. Possible side effects include skin reactions, such as dryness, redness, and itching.
