Topical erythromycin gel


My doctor prescribed topical erythromycin gel (along with Septra anitbiotics). I am prescribed to use the gel twice a day. But when I put it on my skin and it dries, it seems to ball up. So if I need to touch my face, or change my shirt, or anything...the gel balls up and peels off. I don't believe how well this can be working if it isn't sinking into my skin. I have only been on it a week.

Any advice would be greatly appriciated!

As long as you apply it and make sure its sunk into your skin your applying it right. Maybe you could switch to the ATS version which is just basically a liquid so it will not peel off.
