Zithrotop 2% Gel is an antibiotic medicine that fights bacteria. It is used to treat acne, which appears as spots or pimples on your face, chest or back. This medicine works by attacking the germs that cause them. It may also be used to treat minor skin infections.
Zithrotop 2% Gel is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. You should normally wash and dry the affected area before applying a thin layer of the medicine. It should not be applied to broken or damaged skin. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get it in these areas.
It may take several weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. Do not stop using it as soon as your acne starts to get better. Ask your doctor when you should stop treatment.
Side effects like minor itching, irritation, burning sensation, or redness at the site of application may be seen in some people. These are usually temporary and resolve on their own. Consult your doctor if they bother you or do not go away.
Before using it, you should tell your doctor if you are allergic to any antibiotics. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it.
