Zineryt® 40 mg + 12 mg powder and solvent for cutaneous solution

30ml, 90ml


The active substance of Zineryt belongs to the group of antibiotics for the treatment of acne vulgaris, often referred to as pimples or spots. These medicines are used to reduce the growth of bacteria which cause acne

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25 years, but some older and younger people are affected too. Small sebaceous glands lie just under your skin surface and make an oil (sebum) that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Tiny pores on your skin allow the sebum to come on to the surface of your skin. In acne, some of these pores become blocked, causing inflamed spots.

Antibiotics, like erythromycin (ingredient inside Zineryt), work by killing germs (bacteria) that can contribute to acne. They also reduce inflammation. Erythromycin usually works well to clear acne spots that are inflamed and any surrounding skin inflammation. Zineryt® skin solution also contains zinc acetate. This is thought to aid skin healing.
