What is Inderm?

Inderm is an application fluid for topical use on the skin. It contains the active ingredient erythromycin, a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is active against a wide variety of bacteria.

What is it used for?

Inderm is used to treat severe cases of acne. Acne can affect people at any age and manifests itself through pimples, blackheads and subcutaneous infections on the face, chest, back and/or shoulders. Acne develops when overactive sebaceous glands become blocked and infected with acne bacteria. Inderm slows down the growth of bacteria and calms the skin. Within a few weeks, most of the acne will have reduced or completely gone away.

How to use Inderm

Inderm erythromycin application liquid should be applied daily to clean skin with a cotton pad or tissue. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose, mouth or open wounds. Rinse thoroughly with water should this occur. Inderm erythromycin may take a while before it has the desired effect.

For the effect to become evident, you should use it for at least six weeks. However, if symptoms do not improve at all within four weeks, you should consult your doctor. It could be that Inderm erythromycin is not the right medicine for your condition and the treatment may have to be cut short.

Dosage

Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, the usual dose is a thin layer applied to clean skin, twice daily. Always follow the prescribed dosage and read the package leaflet closely before you start using this medicine.

Side effects

In rare cases, Inderm erythromycin may cause side effects. The most commonly reported side effects include skin irritation (burning sensation, redness, scaling and itching) where the product was applied. This generally disappears after several days of treatment. If the side effects make you feel very uncomfortable, it may be necessary to (temporarily) reduce the dosage to one application per day. See package leaflet for more side effects, warnings and contraindications.

Pregnancy / alcohol / driving ability

Inderm erythromycin is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, but you should tell your doctor that you are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to conceive.

Inderm erythromycin does not affect your reaction time or impair your ability to drive safely.

There are no known interactions between alcohol or specific foods and Inderm erythromycin.
