Re: Erythromycin Solution...

i use benzamycin which is a combination of the stuff you're using and benzoyl peroxide. i've been using it for about 2 months now and i really like it. that stuff you're using (i wont even try to spell it) is a topical anti biotic. they are supposed to help really well. i've heard a lot of good things about the one you're using so stick it out for a while. personally i dont think its the benzoyl peroxide in my medication thats helping me, i think its just there to dry your skin out..they say benzoyl peroxide is good at killing bacteria blah, blah, blah but if that were true...would i need to go the dermatologist? okay i'm rambling....good luck

Re: Erythromycin Solution...

Hi,

Do you have to get that "E" stuff prescribed from the doctor, or can you pick it up at a drug store? Thanks.

Re: Erythromycin Solution...

maybe it will work for you because i used clydamycin a.k.a. cleocin. and it didn't work for me either. sometimes you have to try a few things but when you find the one that works, its worth the wait.

girle: it probably stopped working because its a topical antibiotic and sometimes your body and/or skin forms an immunity to them. same with oral antibiotics..not just topical.

johnny: yes, its only available by prescription. i'm sure you can get it some how over the net without one but i wouldn't trust it because you dont know how old it is or if they mixed it with something else...etc..
