Doctor insights on:
I have mild inflamed acne and redness oily skin I used BP, Retinoids, erythromycin, H202, salycilic acid and nothing works at all please advise me?
Irritated acne: You may be overdoing it. Consider using a gentle cleanser twice daily then a gentler topical- May need to see a Derm
Either should help: My usual sequence is to try benzoyl peroxide, then topical antibiotics (erythromycin is a good one), then topical tretinoin (they can be used in combination or separately). The tretinoin and benzoyl willl both dry your skin out. It depends on how severe your acne is and how sensitive your skin is.See 1 more doctor answer
My 7 month baby have a stye in his right eye lid so his doctor gave him a 3.5 gm erythromycin 5mg/g so does it works?
It can help...: The standard of care is to apply warm compresses (moist washcloth on the affected eye for five to 10 minutes about four times a day). Usually, the sty will go away on its own. The sty will usually drain and heal after a few days of treatment. Sometimes a physician may order antibiotic ointment to be applied to the sty.See 1 more doctor answer
By directions: Erythromycin is available is topical ointment, drops and systemic pills and infusions. Your doctor will prescribe the appropriate form and you should follow the directions given. If needed for the eye, for instance, apply the drop or ointment to the lower lid pulled down a little and when it snaps back it will spread the medication over the whole eye.
Probably nothing: What do you mean by overdosing. Did you take an extra pill or swallow the bottle? Generally if you stop taking it your body will clear it and you should be fine.
Yes: There would be no adverse reaction or decrease in effectiveness with topical medication and any food interaction. Perfectly ok.See 1 more doctor answer
Nausea & vomiting: The common side-effects of Erythromycin are nausea, vomiting, sharp abdominal pain, cramps and diarrhea. This also occurs commonly with the related Clarithromycin (biaxin). Azithromycin (zithromax) may trigger these same symptoms but its does so much less frequently. Many people who have GI problems with Erythromycin tolerate zithromax just fine.
Check with your Dr: You don't tell us why UR taking Erythromycin in the first place, how long youhave been taking it or duration of the prescription. U obviously saw a health care provider who gave U prescription in first place. It would be logical to cosult that person. Send us details if you can't afford a return visit to Ur Dr.
PerchloroethylenePCE: I assume that you mean perchloroethylene, which is a dry cleaning solvent. It is pretty toxic to all major organ systems and should be handled with extreme care, only under controlled conditions by trained personnel. Here's a link to the material safety data sheet (msds): http://www.Drycleancoalition.Org/perc.Htm.
What is the chemical composition of erythromycin and which person can have this medication and for how long please answer?
It is a antibiotic: That bind to the p site of 50s ribosomal subunit, interfering with protein synthesis. The subclass is a macrolides and prokinetic. Any person can be started if no contraindications. The length of therapy depend on the type of macrolide and can be from 5 days to two weeks.
