Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin)
What is Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) used for?
Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) is a topical macrolide antibiotic used to treat mild to moderate acne. The medication slows the reproduction of bacteria cells on the skin allowing the immune system to eliminate the infection preventing buildup within the pores and the formation of pimples. Your doctor may also recommend its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin)?
Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One or two daily applications are recommended just before going to sleep, but your individual directions will depend on your health condition and the severity of your symptoms. Rinse and dry the area before each application to remove any dirt or loose skin. Apply a small amount of cream, gently massage it into the skin, and leave the area uncovered allowing any excess medicine to allow any excess medication to evaporate. Thoroughly wash your hands using soap and water after each use to prevent the cream from contacting any mucous membranes or areas of the skin not being treated. Ask your doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
What are the side effects of Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin)?
Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) may cause side effects in some patients such as:
Stop using the medicine and contact your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any serious side effects such as deterioration of your acne symptoms, oozing of the skin, folliculitis, severe stinging or burning, or severe diarrhoea that is bloody or watery. These conditions may require reduced application frequency or emergency medical assistance in serious cases to prevent further health problems from occurring.
Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) should not be applied to skin that is broken or severely damaged. Do not begin using the medication if you are allergic to erythromycin or if you have had a bad reaction to similar treatments in the past. Also inform your doctor if you have any other chronic health conditions that may cause unexpected problems to make sure the necessary adjustments are made to your treatment.
Strictly use Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) as prescribed and follow all instructions provided by your doctor. Safe, suitable, and optimum dosage can vary and is dependent on the patient`s health and medical history, as well as the condition you are treating.
Eryacne Gel (Erythromycin) may not be safe or suitable for all patients. Always ensure your doctor is informed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, using any other type of medication (including non-prescription medicine, vitamins, and supplements), as well as if you have any allergies, other illnesses, or pre-existing medication conditions.
Seek immediate medical attention or proceed to your nearest accident and emergency department if you suffer a hypersensitive or allergic reaction. Symptoms usually present during a reaction of this nature include difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the limbs or face, tight chest, hives, and skin rashes.
