What is Aknemycin Plus?

Aknemycin Plus (Tretinoin 0.025% / Erythromycin 4.0%) is a prescription only medication and is used in the treatment of acne. It has the same active ingredient as Retin-A (Tretinoin 0.025%) plus a topical antibiotic (Erythromycin).

What is it used for?

Tretinoin has been shown to attenuate and reverse the signs of photodamage, such as coarse wrinkling.[1] Topical retinoids have shown beneficial efficacy and good safety profiles in the management of photodamaged skin, and as therapeutic anti-ageing agents.[2] It has been found that topical application of retinoic acid (0.025%) to chronically photodamaged skin regenerated and restored elastic fibers, and that there was a significant positive correlation between the amount of newly regenerated elastic fiber and the wrinkle improvement caused by retinoic acid.[3]

For scar treatment, medical papers show that excellent improvement was observed in the majority of patients (73.3%) in recent trials using tretinoin 0.025%.[4]

Tretinoin encourages the layer of dead and hardened skin cells that form on the skin surface to peel off. At the same time, it clears the blackheads which block your skin pores and cause spots to form. Once the pore is unblocked, sebum can escape so that germ activity is limited. Erythromycin is an antibiotic which kills the germs found in acne and reduces the inflammation of your skin. Aknemycin Plus also helps dissolve away the excess oil in your skin.

How to use Aknemycin Plus?

Always use Aknemycin Plus exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The container has an applicator which allows a simple, hygienic and economic application. Before each use press the top of the screw cap on to 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 once or twice daily as advised by your doctor. After use the applicator will close again automatically.

How long does it take to work?

Carry on using Aknemycin Plus for as long as your doctor 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 with Aknemycin Plus.
