    benzamycin question

    how long does it take you to use up one bottle of benzamycin? I was just wondering because I want to make sure I'm not using too much.
    Thanks.

    a pea size for your whole face. thats all you need. when it comes to medications like this, less is more. it says to keep it refidgerated and discard after 3 months but that doesn't mean you have to use up the whole thing in 3 months.

    Are you using the benzamycin on your entire face or just on the acne itself? I've just been putting it on my pimples and not on my entire face, a pea sized amount seems like a lot, should benzamyacin be placed on the entire face?

    yes, you should always put your medications on the entire face, not just the infected area. a pea size isn't really a lot. maybe for just the pimples you currently have but not for your whole face. unless you have a really, really small head.... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

    You should be using benzamycin for the entire face. You didn't know this? It is to also help prevent future breakouts. I think you may need more then a pea sized amount because I have like three prescriptions for three months. Also I read somewhere that about throwing it out after three months that you shouldn't have to because it should already be gone if you are using it correctly.

    Are you talking about the Benazamycin with Ben. Peroxide?

    Re: benzamycin question

    i dont know about that. i think if i put on more than a pea size i'd burn my face off. that jar they gave me can last me longer than 3 months. i got a new one and probably have a months worth left in the old one. but its 3 months old and they say to discard it. i think if you put your medicine and you have to rub your face a few times before it all seeps in, then you're putting too much on. the pea size amount that i use is working great...but then again, everyone is different.

    leigh: yes it is the one with benzoyl peroxide

    Yes, it's only good for 3 months, as stated on the jar. Make sure it's mixed good too, (sometimes the pharmacists dont mix it very well). Any left over, should be thrown away, since the medication inside it isn't potent anymore.

    It's true, it only lasts for 3 months then the antibiotic in it dies and isn't affective anymore..
