Skinoren is similar to Finacea (both brands of azelaic acid) and then Erythromycin is an antibiotic.

Erythromycin is a macrolide antibiotic. It doesn't kill bacteria but it prevents them from reproducing so your immune system can kill them off.

Erythromycin works by preventing bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to them. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow, replicate and increase in numbers. Erythromycin doesn’t directly kill the bacteria, but leaves them unable to increase in numbers. The remaining bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system. This treats the infection.
