Acnecide 5% Wash is a medicinal cream which treats acne and spots while helping prevent future flare-ups. The active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, works by killing almost all the bacteria responsible for causing your spots. Acnecide also helps absorb excess oil and nourishes the skin with glycerine – a natural moisturiser.
Acnecide 5% Wash is designed for body acne. To treat acne on the face, try Acnecide 5% Gel.
Do not use Acnecide wash if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide. This may cause an allergic reaction like rash or itching.
Avoid contact with your eyes, mouth, angles of your nose, and other sensitive areas of your body. If it accidentally gets in your eyes, immediately wash out with water.
Avoid repeated exposure to direct sunlight, or other sources of UV light.
Contact with coloured material (hair or clothing) may cause the object to lose colour and result in bleaching or discolouration.
If your acne flare ups do not subside after several days of using this wash, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not use this wash at the same time as other acne treatments that cause peeling, irritation, and dryness.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not use Acnecide washes or gels.
Do not apply Acnecide washes or gels to your chest if you are breastfeeding.
You should not use medicines that cause peeling, irritation, or dryness at the same times as Acnecide Wash.
