Zineryt Lotion contains two active ingredients erythromycin and zinc acetate which is used to treat Acne Vulgaris.
What does Erthoromycin do?
Erythromycin is used to treat infections caused by bacteria. It works by attacking the bacteria associated with acne.
Erythromycin prevents bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to them. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow, replicate and increase in numbers. Erythromycin doesn't directly kill the bacteria, but leaves them unable to increase in numbers. The remaining bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system.
By controlling bacterial numbers, erythromycin brings the inflammation of the sebaceous glands under control, and allows the skin to heal.
What does Zinc Acetate do?
Zinc preparations have traditionally been used for their skin healing properties. In this preparation, zinc is used in the form of zinc acetate because this combines with the erythromycin to form a chemical complex which is efficiently absorbed into the skin.
