Erythromycin / Benzoyl Peroxide (Benzamycin)

Topical Antibiotic / Topical Antibacterial

Erythromycin and benzoyl peroxide work through the following mechanisms:

Antibacterial activity

Erythromycin and benzoyl peroxide kill acne bacteria (C. acnes).

Anti-inflammatory activity

Erythromycin reduces skin inflammation.

Anti-keratinization

Benzoyl peroxide reduces the production of keratin (a sticky skin protein), which helps skin cells shed from the skin. This helps clear and prevent clogged pores.
