Buy Aknemycin Plus Solution online

Aknemycin Plus Solution is a topical treatment for acne. It contains the two active ingredients, erythromycin which is an antibiotic that kills the germs found in acne and reduces the inflammation of your skin, and tretinoin, which encourages the layer of dead and hardened skin cells that form on the skin surface to peel. At the same time, it clears the blackheads which block your pores and cause spots to form. Once the pores are unblocked, sebum can escape so that germ activity is reduced. Aknemycin Plus Solution also helps to dissolve away the excess oil in your skin.

 

Directions

Always use Aknemycin Plus Solution exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. The container has an applicator which allows a simple, hygienic and economic application. Before each use, press the top of the screw cap onto the foam pad until you feel a click, then invert the bottle so that the solution wets the applicator pad, then wipe the applicator over the affected skin areas. Normally you should apply Aknemycin Plus Solution once or twice daily as advised by your doctor. After use the applicator will close again automatically.

Carry on using Aknemycin Plus Solution for as long as your doctor or pharmacist tells you. The length of time depends on the condition of your skin but this will normally be between 9 and 12 weeks. It is important that you use Aknemycin Plus regularly. There may not be any improvement in your skin condition for several weeks after starting the treatment.

 

Side effects

Like all products, Aknemycin Plus Solution may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness. Side effects may include: 

  • A burning sensation on damaged skin
  • When you first use Aknemycin Plus Solution, your acne may worsen. This is a sign that the medicine is beginning to act. However, this should soon pass and you will then see an improvement

For more information on potential side effects, refer to the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

 

Warnings

Aknemycin Plus Solution may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not use this product if you are allergic to erythromycin, tretinoin, or any of the other listed ingredients. When applying Aknemycin Plus Solution to the face do not let the solution touch your eyes. If by mistake it does, rinse your eyes thoroughly with cold water. Take care that the solution does not build up in creases in the skin.

If you have to have an X-ray, remove all traces of Aknemycin Plus from the area to be X-rayed. If the solution gets on your fingers you should wash them thoroughly. During treatment with Aknemycin Plus Solution, your skin may become more sensitive to UV light therefore, do not sunbathe, use sunbeds or sunlamps. Do not apply the solution before swimming. Do not light a cigarette or expose yourself to flame until the medicine has dried completely. Do not use this product if you have any of the following:

Frequently Asked Questions

Acne is a skin condition that results in spots caused by the build up of too much sebum (oil) in the hair follicles in your skin.

 

There are different types of acne and different levels of severity. The different types of spots include blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts.

 

Your acne may be deemed as severe if you develop nodules (large, hard, painful lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin) or cysts (large, pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils).

 

At this stage, you should seek advice from your GP for expert treatment to avoid scarring, especially if it’s making you feel very unhappy.

You do need a prescription for this medication in the UK.

Our healthcare professionals can provide prescriptions if they think this treatment would be right for you and your condition.

When you click the button which reads “Start Consultation” at the top of this page, you’ll see a short questionnaire set up by our healthcare team which is designed to help them understand your medical needs.

Just like an in-person consultation with your GP, our doctors will assess your answers to their questions and write a prescription for the treatment they think will be best for you.

You’ll then be able to pay for your medication and we’ll send it out to you quickly and in discreet packaging.
