Erytrexin Gel

    Erytrexin is indicated for the topical treatment of moderate acne.

    Adults and Adolescents (aged 12 years and above) Apply Erytrexin in a thin film over the entire affected area once or twice daily, preferably after cleaning the skin gently with a mild cleanser and drying fully. Avoid close proximity to eyes, lips, and other mucous membranes.
    Patients should be advised that, in some cases, six to eight weeks of treatment may be required before the full therapeutic effect is observed. The efficacy and safety of Erytrexin has not been studied beyond 12 weeks in acne vulgaris clinical trials. The prescriber should evaluate the benefit of continuing treatment beyond 12 weeks of uninterrupted use, taking account of an increased risk of antimicrobial resistance.
    Patients should wash their hands after application of Erytrexin Gel. The patient should be advised to avoid over-saturation with Erytrexin to the extent that excess medication could run into their eyes, and angles of the nose or other areas where treatment is not intended. Patients should be advised that if Erytrexin is applied excessively, no more rapid or better results would be obtained and marked redness, peeling or discomfort may occur. Should this occur accidentally or through over enthusiastic use patients may use a moisturiser as needed and should reduce frequency of application or application should be discontinued for a few days. The normal frequency of application should be resumed once the irritation subsides. Treatment should be discontinued if the irritation persists. Efficacy has not been established for less than once daily dosing frequencies.
    Due to the flammable nature of Erytrexin, patients should avoid smoking or being near an open flame during application and immediately after use.
