Product Description

Use Acnecide 5% gel to effectively treat your spots

Your doctor or pharmacist has recommended this medicine to treat your acne. Acne appears as blackheads and whiteheads which people often refer to as pimples or spots

How does Acnecide 5% gel work?

Acnecide 5% gel contains the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide which attacks the bacteria (germs) known as Propionibacterium acnes

SKU:8793612

Unless your doctor or pharmacist has told you otherwise

• Wash the affected area with a mild skin cleanser and water, and gently pat your skin dry.
• Apply the gel once or twice a day to all the affected areas.

Any drying or peeling which may occur to your skin may be reduced if you alter the number of times you apply, i.e. to once a day or once every two days, until your skin adjusts to the product.

You should try to avoid exposure to strong sunlight while using Acnecide. If exposure is unavoidable, use a suitable sunscreen lotion and apply Acnecide in the evening. Remember to wash the affected area before use.

How long you will have to use Acnecide will depend on how quickly your condition improves. After you have used it for one month, you should see your doctor or pharmacist again. He or she can then check the improvement of your condition.

You should start treatment with the lower strength product. Provided your skin tolerates the lower strength gel, your doctor or pharmacist may recommend continued treatment with a higher strength gel to further help clear your acne.

It is normal in the first weeks to experience a feeling of skin tension, dryness or a burning, stinging or itching sensation, and a small amount of peeling or reddening of the skin. These effects are usually mild and will go when treatment stops or the gel is applied less often.
