How does Aknemycin Plus work?
The two most effective components, erythromycin and tretinoin, make Aknemycin Plus a potent medicine for treating acne. Erythromycin is an antibiotic that prohibits the growth of bacteria and reduces the number of infected pimples. Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that exfoliates the skin and unclogs the pores. This action helps to diminish spots caused by acne. Additionally, the alcohol-based formula dissolves away excessive oil and reduces inflammation on the skin.
