Benzamycin is a topical anti-acne medication that combines benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic erythromycin.

Benzoyl peroxide is a proven antimicrobial and antibacterial that efficiently kills the P. Acnes bacteria responsible for inflammatory acne lesions.

Erythromycin is most commonly prescribed as an oral antibiotic to systematically control the body's bacteria populations and to reduce the redness or inflammation of acne lesions.

Benzamycin is only available by prescription from your dermatologist and must be kept refrigerated.

The major benefit of Benzamycin is that the antimicrobial properties of benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic effect of erythromycin work together very effectively to almost entirely eradicate the P. Acnes bacteria on your face.


Benzamycin is usually applied twice a day by spreading a small pea sized amount over the entire face, neck and wherever else acne lesions are present. Most patients find that the refrigeration of the medication creates a soothing effect that may lessen irritation.

The side effects of Benzamycin as listed by the manufacturer, Dermik Laboratories, include stinging, peeling, burning, redness, itching and sensitivity to the sun which could lead to sunburns.

Just recently, Dermik released a new product named "Benzamycin Pak" that doesn't require refrigeration and comes in a small pocket sized container. This allows you to follow your anti-acne regiment even when you're away from home or don't have access to a refrigerator.
