Zineryt Lotion FAQs
You should not combine Zineryt with antibiotic acne treatments such as Tetralysal (lymecycline), Minocin (minocycline) or Erythromycin tablets. Zineryt can be used with other acne creams (such as those containg benzoyl peroxide), however this is not usually necessary.
Redness and irritation of the treated area can occur when you use Zineryt for the first time. This is not usually serious and normally subsides within a week. During this time reduce the frequency of Zineryt application to once daily to allow your skin to recover and then slowly build up to using it twice daily.
Zineryt is an prescription-only acne treatment. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal operating of our pharmacy, we only supply a maximum of 3 packs of treatment at one time. Zineryt treatment is normally only for a period of 8-12 weeks. This means that you should have enough to last you for the recommended treatment period. If you require further supplies you can always contact one of our medical team directly.

Zineryt can temporarily worsen redness on your skin. However, after the course of treatment, the overall reduction in acne could lead to real improvements in redness over time.
Zineryt should be used to treat moderate to severe acne on the face, neck, shoulders or back. Moderate acne is defined by NHS Choices as where there are multiple papules and pustules (red spots and whiteheads) that are mostly confined to the face. If this describes your acne, or it is more severe, Zineryt may be a suitable treatment for your acne.
Using Zineryt should not affect the contraceptive pill.
Zineryt treatment is unlikely to be affected by alcohol consumption. You should be aware that high levels of alcohol consumption may not be good for the health of your skin and may make acne symptoms worse.
If Zineryt treatment is ineffective on your acne, there are many other options for you to try. You may wish to try a different antibiotic treatment such as Dalacin T (topical treatment) or Tetralysal capsules, or alternatively a different method with topical treatments such as Differin or Skinoren, Duac or other ointments and gels.
Alternatively, drugs such as Roaccutane (isotretinoin) can be prescribed by dermatologists as a last resort, if the acne does not respond to other treatments.
Individuals may find that their acne responds to different treatment depending on their skin type, what causes their acne and any other skin conditions they may also suffer with. It is therefore important to try a range of treatments and give them time to have an effect to allow you to find a suitable and effective treatment for your acne.
If you find treatment with Zineryt successful and your acne improves, you can slowly discontinue treatment after 12 weeks. This will allow you to see if your acne has been 'cured' or if you can keep it under control with an effective washing and cleansing regime. Some people may find that their acne returns and requires further treatment.
It is possible for Zineryt to reduce your acne to levels where it can be controlled by cleansing alone in some cases whereas for other people they may find that their acne returns after a period of time. It is generally not advised to use Zineryt for very long periods, if your acne has cleared up you should take a break from applying the solution after 12 weeks to see if they are still required and to give yourself a break from the constantly using the medication. This is because, as with any antibiotic, your body can develop a resistance, so the treatment may become less effective after a while.
Acne is most common on the face although it does also occur on the neck, shoulders and back. Zineryt can be applied to wherever there is an overgrowth of bacteria causing acne, whether it is you face, neck, shoulders or back.
The Independent Pharmacy Online Doctor service is able to prescibe Zineryt to people aged 18 years and over for the treatment of acne. If you are aged under 18, you will need to see your GP for Zineryt to ensure it is appropriate for you and your condition.
If you stop using Zineryt and your acne comes back, you may restart treatment at any point. If your condition improves then you should continue with Zineryt treatment for another 10-12 weeks however, if it is less effective during subsequent rounds of treatment you may wish to try a different acne treatment.
As well as using antibiotic acne treatment, you should also get in to the habit of cleansing the affected areas regularly. You should wash them twice daily with warm, not hot, water using a mild cleansing agent. When washing, ensure you do not scrub the area too hard so as to irritate the skin as this can make acne worse. If you use moisturisers or make-up on the affected area, try to ensure they are non-comedogenic (oil-free) so that they do not contribute to your acne.
Yes, you can wear makeup whilst using Zineryt. You should ensure that you wash and cleanse your face thoroughly before applying Zineryt to dry skin. The Zineryt solution should be allowed to dry before any make-up is applied to the affected areas of skin. It’s best to avoid oil-based makeup as it has been proven to be comedonal and can aggravate acne. This is because the excess oils, when mixed with the oil on the skin, can cause pores to block.
Zineryt comes as a separate powder and solution that needs o be mixed before it can be used. Once the powder and solution are mixed to form the useable product, Zineryt has an expiry date of 8 weeks from when it was made up. To ensure that your treatment reaches you with the longest expiry date possible, we do not mix the Zineryt solution before dispatch.
This medication is sometimes used to treat conditions other than acne vulgaris. Rosacea and perioral dermatitis (rash of the lips or eyes) are two such conditions. Consult our Online Doctor if either of these affect you.
Zineryt works by effectively killing the bacteria that are the root cause of acne vulgaris. It does not directly help with acne scarring, though it can certainly prevent scarring and marks from occurring by treating acne.
Zineryt has a distinctive smell, but it does not bleach your clothes. This makes it suitable for use throughout the day, under clothing, or at night while you sleep.
There is no evidence to suggest that Zineryt affects the natural aging process of the skin.
The zinc acetate in this medication is an active ingredient that is proven to effectively assist with the skin-healing process.
