Erythromycin 250mg Tablets reviews
Erythromycin 250mg Tablets FAQs
There is currently no cure for rosacea, as the exact causes are still unknown. Usually rosacea affects the skin on your nose, cheeks, and forehead, with flare-ups occurring in cycles. Sufferers may experience symptoms for weeks or months at a time, then find that symptoms go away. However, they often recur later.
Oral erythromycin is an antibiotic that can be used to treat moderate to severe acne, particularly that which isn't improving using other treatments. It can also be used topically to treat acne, as a cream, gel or ointment. Erythromycin is used to treat a wide range of conditions, from acne and rosacea to ear infections
Please note, we do not prescribe Erythromycin for ear infections.
Erythromycin is what’s known as a macrolide antibiotic. Its most common side effect is GI toxicity. When taken orally, the acidic environment of the stomach degrades the tablets into a substance that can cause adverse GI effects – including diarrhoea. Other effects can include stomach ache or nausea.
As well as tablet form, Erythromycin also comes as a cream or gel that can be applied topically to treat acne and rosacea. The antibiotic ointment helps to reduce inflammation and pimples by stopping the growth of bacteria. This topical treatment works best if used at the same time every day. At The Independent Pharmacy, we stock Mirvaso Gel and Rozex Gel for topical rosacea treatment.
Since rosacea doesn’t have a known cure, some people opt for laser resurfacing treatment. The painless procedure destroys tiny blood vessels and usually heals fairly quickly, helping to control rosacea. Many patients choose to combine laser treatment with medication.
It’s important to remember that there are always risks with laser treatment – anyone can get an adverse reaction to laser surgery. Only trained medical professionals should ever operate facial lasers.
