Benzamycin Dosage

This gel should be applied topically to any area that is affected by acne. It will then kill the propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) bacteria. It seems to work well when one has active acne papules or pustules. While it may take time prior to seeing improvement of your symptoms it is important to keep applying Benzamycin gel the way your doctor has prescribed it.

Concerning usage, apply to all the affected areas of your skin two times a day. The most preferable times are morning and evening. Prior to this, wash your face with a mild cleanser and let the skin dry fully. Next, apply a thin film of Benzamycin gel over the skin and leave it to dry.

When dry it looks clear rather than white. If you notice a white film, then you have applied an excess amount. Try applying a smaller amount the next dosing time. Make sure that Benzamycin does not get inside your nose, eyes or mouth as it can irritate them.

Side Effects

As with other topical acne treatments, Benzamycin is likely to cause some side effects. However, you are likely to suffer from just the most common side effects. These include:

  • Skin peeling and dryness.
  • Some users may also notice stinging, burning, itching, irritation and redness
  • The skin might look discolored too, also called hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, and it could feel more sensitive when you are out in the sun

Common side effects are much more tolerable and do not have to be reported to the physician.

On the other hand, if you notice more severe side effects like skin hives, diarrhea, nail fungus, skin fungus or cramps, call your doctor immediately. Moreover, this medicine could cause side effects that are not mentioned in this article. So it is upon you to report anything unusual to your doctor.


Let your doctor be aware of the following:

  • That you are using other prescribed or non-prescribed acne medicine
  • That you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant
  • That you are breastfeeding a baby.
  • That you are allergic to any ingredient in Benzamycin

Note that the medication can cause skin dryness and flaking. To combat these, get a non acnegenic or non comedogenic moisturizer.
