What is Stiemycin?


Stiemycin is an antiseptic solution for topical application. It contains the active ingredient erythromycin, which is a type of medicine known as a macrolide antibiotic. Erythromycin works by attacking the bacteria associated with acne, such as Propionibacterium acnes. Stiemycin is a prescription-only medicine that can be ordered online from a Dokteronline.com partner pharmacy.

What is Stiemycin used for?


Stiemycin is used to treat acne (spots). Acne is caused by an overproduction of sebum, which can lead to clogged pores. The acne bacteria, which live off sebum, produce waste products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands, making them inflamed and causing spots. By controlling bacterial numbers, Stiemycin brings the inflammation of the sebaceous glands under control and allows the skin to heal.
