Erythromycin or BP

Recommended Posts

Hi, I haven't seen much on this site about erythromycin which surprises me because it seems like a pretty basic antibiotic. I just wanted to know if erythromycin did as good of a job as preventing acne as BP does. Also, does it cause redness and dry skin? I would appreciate anybody that has used erythromycin before to share their expierences with me. Thanks.

I used Benzamycin (Erythromycin + BP) for 6 months and it worked extremely well. Yes, it was extremely drying for several months. But it worked well. Erythromycin is an antibiotic, BP is an antimicrobial. The Erythromycin should work better than the BP.
