Introduction

Topmetro Gel is an antibiotic used to treat acne and some skin infections. It helps to reduce the number of pimples. This medicine stops the bacteria from growing, which helps to resolve your symptoms.

Topmetro Gel is meant for external use only. It should be applied only to the affected area of the skin as per the dosage and schedule prescribed by your doctor. In order to get the most benefit, apply it regularly, and preferably at the same time each day. Do not use larger amounts or apply it more often or for a longer duration than directed. This will only increase the risk of side effects. You may have to use it for a long time (up to 3 months) before your acne starts to improve. Be patient and keep using it every day.

Common side effects include dry skin, erythema, and application site reactions like minor burning, stinging, or irritation. These are usually temporary and resolve quickly. Consult your doctor if any of these persist or if your condition does not improve.

Before using it, inform your doctor if you have any previous history of allergy to it or any other medicine. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the medicine in these areas.
