A 20.1.6 Topical Antibiotics
Erythromycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic produced from a strain ofStreptomyces erythraeus and belongs to the macrolide group of antibiotics. It is basic and readily forms salts with acids.
Erythromycin inhibits bacterial protein synthesis without affecting nucleic acid synthesis.
ILOTYCIN T.S. is indicated for the treatment of the following grades of acne vulgaris (primary grades II and III) in which comedones, papules and pustules predominate. This preparation is not recommended for deep, cystic nodular varieties (acne conglobata).
This drug is contra-indicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to erythromycin.
Usage in pregnancy: The safety of this preparation in pregnant women has not been established.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
ILOTYCIN T.S. should be applied to the affected area twice a day after the skin is thoroughly washed with warm water and soap. Apply ILOTYCIN T.S. over entire facial area using the "Dab-O-Matic" applicator. Acne lesions on the neck, shoulder, chest and back may also be treated in this manner.
SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS:
The use of antimicrobial agents may be associated with the overgrowth of antibiotic-resistant organisms; in such a case, antibiotic administration should be stopped and appropriate measures taken.
As with any other medicament intended for topical use, there is always the possibility that primary irritation or allergic contact dermatitis will develop in certain individuals. However, previous experience with ointment preparations of ILOTYCIN indicates that such occurrences are rare, and the incidence with this formulation is less than 1%.
ILOTYCIN T.S. is for external use only. It should not be used in the eyes. Do not let the solution get into the eyes.
ILOTYCIN T.S. (Solution) is a clear, colourless, alcoholic solution.
ILOTYCIN T.S. (Solution) is supplied in bottles containing 50 mL.
