What Acnecide is and what it is used for
Acnecide contains the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide which attacks the bacteria (germs) known as Cutibacterium acnes, one of the main causes of acne.
Acne appears as blackheads and whiteheads which people often refer to as pimples or spots. Acne of the face, chest or back may be treated with this medicine.
What Co-cyprindiol is what it is used for
Co-cyprindiol contains an oestrogen and an anti-androgen.
Co-cyprindiol is used to treat skin conditions such as acne, very oily skin and excessive hair growth in women of reproductive age. Due to its contraceptive properties, it should only be prescribed to you if your doctor considers that treatment with a hormonal contraceptive is appropriate.
You should only take Co-cyprindiol if your skin condition has not improved after use of other anti-acne treatments, including topical treatments and antibiotics.
Androgens are hormones that stimulate hair growth and the grease glands in your skin. If you produce too much androgen, or if you are sensitive to the effect, the grease glands may produce too much sebum. This can block the grease glands, which can become infected and inflamed causing acne spots. Co-cyprindiol stops the androgens affecting your skin and reduces the number of androgens produced.
