What is Zineryt Solution?
Zineryt is a skin lotion that helps treat common acne problems like spots and bumps. It has erythromycin and zinc, which work together to kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce redness.

How does Zineryt Solution work?
Zineryt solution for acne contains the active ingredients erythromycin and zinc acetate. Acne suffers have excess sebum, which bacteria (called Propionibacterium) feed on. Propionibacterium produces waste products that cause skin inflammation and infection. Erythromycin is an antibiotic that prevents acne-causing bacteria from multiplying, allowing the skin to restore its natural balance. Erythromycin also combines with zinc acetate to help combat redness and inflammation.
