Benzamycin Gel Description

Acne is not just a teenagers’ nightmare as acne affects an estimated 80% of Americans at some time in their life and has the distinction of being the most common skin disease in the USA. This chronic inflammatory condition occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes or P. acnes).

Benzamycin Gel or generic Erythromycin/Benzoyl Peroxide is a topical antibiotic and drying agent that also possesses antibacterial actions. You must be consistent about applying Benzamycin Gel as instructed and be patient as it could take several weeks before you see and feel the improvement to your skin’s appearance. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Stop Bacterial Growth and Replication for Healthier Looking Skin

Erythromycin is an antibiotic that will work to prevent the P. acnes bacteria from making new proteins by binding to a certain bacterial enzyme. The bacteria need these new proteins to be able to grow and multiply so Erythromycin causes their numbers to dwindle and your own immune system will help to kill off any remaining bacteria. The anti-inflammatory effects of Erythromycin prove more beneficial than their antimicrobial effects.

P. acnes bacteria are anaerobes, meaning they cannot live in the presence of oxygen. And what is Benzoyl Peroxide all about? Yes, oxygen. It works to kill the bacteria by adding oxygen to your skin and decreasing the inflammation. Benzoyl Peroxide also removes the excess oils from your skin and unclogs your pores by removing dead skin cells. The keratolytic action helps to slough off old skin cells and leaving you with clear, vibrant skin.

Conditions Treated by Benzamycin Gel

Although the excess oil (sebum) that is produced from your sebaceous glands when puberty strikes is one of the causes of acne, it is now believed that inflammation is a major player for acne. As you reach your teens, hormone levels increase which causes a rise in sebum. This oil is also a great food source for bacteria and if the food source is greater, bacteria numbers will increase as well. The clogged follicles that house the P. acnes bacteria will become inflamed as an immune response and next thing you know, your face, back, neck, or chest breaks out in pimples.

Before Benzamycin Gel is Applied to Your Skin

Ask your doctor if there are any risks involved if you apply Benzamycin Gel while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Benzamycin Gel is safe for you.

Benzamycin Gel Precautions and Proper Use

Avoid getting Benzamycin in your eyes, nose, or mouth and rinse immediately with cool tap water if this occurs. Do not apply Benzamycin Gel to open sores, irritated areas, or burns on your skin. Your skin may be more sensitive to the effects of tanning booths and sunlamps so you should avoid exposure during treatment. Remember to apply a sunscreen with an SPF 30 and wear protective clothing if you are expecting to be out in sunlight.
