Benzamycine/clindoxyl gel in Australia?

I've just returned from Canada to Australia and benzamycine doesn't seem to be available. There are bp products and entromycine gels but no combination products. Does anyone know whether 3% enthromycine and 5% bp can be purchased separately and mixed by hand? If so, is it effective like benzamycine?

This is a question you should ask a pharmacist. They are the ones that mix benzamycine. If you were to mix say... 100 ml of 3% erythro and 100ml of 5% benzoyl, then you would have 200ml of 1.5% erythro and 2.5% benzoyl... catch my drift? You would need to mix 10% benzoyl and 6% erythro together to have a result of 5% and 3%. What might disrupt the procedure is the other substances within the products you are mixing. Mixing is a procedure you would really need to ask a pharmacist about.
