About Lymecycline

Lymecycline is an tetracycline antibiotic used to specifically treat acne buy destroying the bacteria which causes moderate to severe acne.  Acne is caused by harmless bacteria which live on the skin.

The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any acne treatment, including Lymecycline.

What is contained in Lymecycline?

The active ingredient in each tablet is lymecycline.

The inactive ingredients which make up the rest of each tablet include magnesium stearate, colloidal silica, titanium dioxide, erythrosine, gelatin, quinoline yellow and indigo carmine.

How effective is Lymecycline?

This particular antibiotic is mainly prescribed in the healing of acne due to its effectiveness at destroying the bacteria which causes it, and although it usually takes a few weeks to see the full benefits from your course of medication, many people do see improvements in their skin in as little as a week.

How does Lymecycline work?

Lymecycline stops the bacteria living on the skin, which is causing the acne inflammation from reproducing and increasing in numbers. One of the most common types of acne is associated with bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes which lives by feeding on the sebum produced in the skin’s sebaceous glands. The waste this bacteria produces as it feeds irritates the glands and inflames them, which results in the spots. By using lymecycline, you are able to decrease the numbers of the bacteria on the skin and bring the acne back under control.

Alternative treatments to Lymecycline

It would be best to use Lymecycline after trying typical skin treatments available in gels and creams, also known as topical treatments. Lymecycline should only be used when all other acne treatments do not work.

Not only this, but even when using Lymecycline, you should continue using topical peeling and anti-inflammatory products, such as topical treatments containing benzoyl peroxide. In addition to benzoyl peroxide, you can use Differin or Epiduo. These treatments work differently from other antibiotics. Note that combining your treatments results in a more effective outcome. It even reduces the development of antibiotic resistance.

Since Lymecycline is an oral antibiotic, it may be more effective than topical antibiotic acne treatments. However, if topical treatments are effective for you, you should not switch to oral antibiotics unless advised otherwise by your GP.

Similarly, other oral antibiotics used to treat acne are clarithromycin, erythromycin, as well as trimethoprim. You can also use the combined contraceptive pill as it can be an effective treatment for acne in women.

However, if acne is severe, persistent, scarring, or causing significant distress, then you should consider consulting a dermatologist. In such cases, Roaccutane (isotretinoin) may be prescribed.
