How to use Aknemycin Plus

To use Aknemycin Plus, you need to clean your face with a gentle cleanser and then:

  1. Press the Aknemycin Plus screw cap on the foam pad until you hear a ‘click’.
  2. Then, gently turn the bottle upside down a few times, so the liquid soaks the applicator pad.
  3. Glide the applicator over the affected areas on your skin to apply a thin coat of Aknemycin Plus. Avoid your eye and under eye area.
  4. Wash your hands after you apply Aknemycin Plus. If you get Aknemycin Plus in your eye, flush it out immediately with cold water for a few minutes.

You should use Aknemycin Plus twice a day before you apply any other products to your skin. The first few times you use Aknemycin Plus, your skin might feel sore or irritated, so you can apply less or use it every other day to start with. Once you get used to Aknemycin Plus, you should see your acne improve within a few weeks.

A full treatment course for Aknemycin Plus is 9 to 12 weeks. You can always speak to a doctor if you want to use a different acne treatment.

Lifestyle while using Aknemycin Plus

There are situations where you need to be careful about applying Aknemycin Plus.

  • You should wait a few minutes for Aknemycin Plus to absorb into your skin before you apply any moisturiser, serums or makeup.
  • If you’re going to have an X-ray, make sure you do not use Aknemycin Plus and wash it off completely. This includes going to the dentist to get an X-ray of your teeth.
  • Avoid using sunbeds or sun lamps at any time while using Aknemycin Plus.
  • Do not use Aknemycin Plus before swimming.

If you use too much Aknemycin Plus

Using too much Aknemycin Plus can cause skin irritation, may your skin feel dry or look red. If this happens, you should use Aknemycin Plus a few times per week rather than every day. You can message a doctor in your patient account, if your skin does not improve.

Never use extra Aknemycin Plus to make up for a time you forgot to apply it.
