Zineryt Topical
Hi there

Please can you give me the directions of use for Zineryt Topical aswell as the side effects. I got it on Sunday and the pharmacist took it out of the boks and put it in the bag. I asked her id all the instructions are with it and she said everything I need is there. She didn't give me the instructions leaflet. It doesn't say if it's a face wash, toner, how much to use. I know al lot of these face washes can burn your skin if you use ot much.Pleace can you give me any directions of use. And do I need to wear sun block while using it. The girl I asked didn't look to sure but said I don't think so. And can I wear make-up over it. I'll never use that pharmacy again.

Any help would be great

Any help would be greatly aprreciated

It's not a wash or toner - Zineryt is a topical antibiotic (erythromycin and zinc) application which is applied directly to affected areas, i.e. acne. Apply twice daily over the whole of the affected area for a period of 10 to 12 weeks.
