Zineryt solution is a topical acne treatment containing the antibiotic erythromycin. Zineryt is usually applied twice daily to acne affected area, usually for 10 to 12 weeks.
Zineryt works by reducing the level of the skin bacteria associated with acne.
How to use Zineryt
Please note: pharmacists are required to pre-mix Zineryt before posting, and once constituted the solution has an 8-week shelf life.
Instructions are listed on the manufacturer's patient information leaflet.
Apply twice daily using the applicator pad attached to the bottle, avoid eyes, mouth, and nose. Apply thinly, washing off any excess or any solution in contact with the eyes or mucous membranes.
It may take a few weeks of use, and up to 8 weeks, for best results. If there is no improvement after 8 weeks, or worsening before, stop Zineryt and consult a doctor.
If acne has resolved after 10 to 12 weeks, stop treatment, and restart later if necessary, if acne returns.
Use with other acne treatments
Only one type of antibiotic treatment should be used at one time, rather than combining antibiotic treatments together at the same time. A range of acne treatments are available from Dr Fox.
Zineryt contains erythromycin, which is one of the macrolide group of antibiotics, other examples of macrolides being clarithromycin and azithromycin.
Peeling and anti inflammatory topical preparations, such as Differin and Epiduo can be used at the same time with Zineryt, although this increases the chances of localised side effects, such as skin irritation.
Zineryt side effects and cautions
Zineryt is usually well tolerated. In rare cases it can cause inflammation of the skin. Sensitivity reaction, although very rare, is possible. If the skin becomes inflamed and swollen, stop treatment straightaway and consult a doctor.
Zineryt can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women. Women who are breastfeeding should not apply Zineryt to the chest area.
Does not affect ability to drive or operate machinery.
Patient Information Leaflet
The Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) is the leaflet included in the pack with a medicine and must be read before taking the medicine. It is written for patients and gives information about taking or using a medicine.

Great at preventing acne. Use twice or three times a per week and it doesn’t dry the skin that way

Cleared up my skin

Very Good product for acne
C. Goiceanu Verified
Worked really well but is now sadly out of stock - for how long, who knows?
Very good at attacking spots and even light marks on the face. However not for sensitive skin. I’ve been using this about 2-3 times a year and each time I’d use for 2-3 weeks as then there seems to be no effect after that.I would recommend for anyone to try at least.
