Just been prescirbed erythromycin-zinc cream for my skin.

My first thought is that won't this cause antibiotic resistance in p.acnes? If so, will it come back worse than before once it stops working?

I think you can safely use the tube you've been prescribed without creating an antibiotic resistant strain of p. acnes or making things worse.  Topical antibiotic creams are one of the many weapons that can be tried against acne.  Like any topical, not all people will get good results but you have to try the different things to find what works for you.
