Medically reviewed by Last updated on Jan 18, 2023.

Use Spotex once in the morning and once in the evening, unless your doctor or pharmacist has told you otherwise.
Wash the affected areas with water or with a mild cleanser, and then thoroughly dry the affected areas and gently apply on a thin film of Spotex using the tips of your fingers. Don't forget to wash your hands afterwards.

The alcohol quickly evaporates and erythrornycin penetrates into your skin without leaving an unpleasant film, after you have used Spotex; screw the cap tightly on the tube.

How long you will have to use Spotex will depend on how quickly your acne improves. You may well use Spotex Gel for one month and then a lower strength product for one more month. Your doctor will decide which strength to prescribe for you.
It is recommended to use sunscreens over treated areas before sun exposure.
