Erytop Gel for Topical Treatment of Acne

Hello all, I just want to share my experience with all those who have pimple-prone skin. During my college days, my skin was affected by pimples. I consulted my family doctor and he suggested me this Erytop gel. I found it quite economical and put it into regular use. Erytop is a drug and the best medicine for pimples.

Erytop Gel for Topical Treatment of Acne



Clindamycin phosphate USP equivalent to clindamycin.
Preservatives: Sodium Methylparaben IP, Sodium Proplyparaben IP.
Colours: Red oxide of Iron and Tetanium dioxide.


Price and Quantity:
I am not very sure of its current price. I feel its Rs. 75 for 20 g.

My Experience with Erytop Gel For Acne:

It comes in a hygiene tube which is easy to squeeze with a twist-up cap. This cream is peach in colour with soft texture. It has medium consistency. It smells of chemicals since it’s a drug, but not strong smelling. I used to apply once daily only to the affected area at night before going to bed. It gave me immediate results within a week. I used it for a month and believe me, my pimples vanished permanently.


I was told by my doctor not to expose myself to sunlight when I applied Erytop gel. So, I used only at nights. Even now, I keep a tube of Erytop with me and use it very rarely whenever my skin breaks out, but as it’s a chemical, it makes my skin dull and dry. My skin became rough because of using it regularly for over a month, but there was not any peeling off. I did not even have any irritating or burning sensation.

I did not worry much about dryness because I was more happy looking at my pimple-free skin with clear complexion. I applied milk cream regularly to work on the dryness and pimple marks. It gave me good results.


Pros of Erytop Gel:

• Most effective solution for pimples.
• Shows immediate results. Regular usage for a few days vanishes pimples permanently.
• Even though it’s a chemical, it does not show any burning/irritating sensation.
• Price is affordable.
• Standard packing and is easy to carry.

Cons of Erytop Gel:

• It is a drug with chemical ingredients, which makes skin too rough and dry.

Rating: I give 4.5/5.

Will I Recommend?

I recommend everyone to use this for controlling pimples. It shows results within no time. To be on the safe side, people with very sensitive skin can consult a doctor before using it.

erytop is best way for clean our face.

I swear by Erytop

I'm using Erytop since 5 years, and it's the only cream I trust to vanish Pimples and marks.I use it during night,after cleaning my face and giving a light dab with a cloth dipped in hot water, so that skin pores are open. Then apply Erytop on affected area,and massage in circular motion.Sleep on a clean pillow. Yeah it dries up the skin a bit, for this I use,Yogurt or Milk to massage in day time.

i hv erytop lotion actually


Taps September 17, 2011 at 3:51 pm

earlier some 2 yrs back i had kind of combination skin, i used to gorge on fast foods much so suffered a break out, not severe but still i was horrified seeing that and bought erytop lotion from a chemist, i saw within 1 day the zits n all were shrinking on their own and by 2nd day no pimples , and 3 day no marks, so its good but if you continously use it, then it kinda stops working- use it sometimes


dollar September 17, 2011 at 12:37 am

hmmm taps does it work for u too…….i have sensitive skin……:(
i m also willing to anythign for this really tiny break out……..i hav just started to use safi :worship: … and trying to stay away from oily foood :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: ………i m so tempted by the review mention for in 10 days result :preen: but will consult the doc.. :thanks: meghana


Fire Crystals September 17, 2011 at 12:43 am

I have sensitive skin too…it even acts up sometimes if I have a facial. But Erytop has never given me any trouble. And it definitely gives you results very quickly.


Maneesha September 18, 2011 at 1:05 am

hello dollar…how is safi working for you?? i had thought of trying it out but after researching it a bit, i felt it was not safe n healthy in the long run… especially for women…. just try googling Safi side effects or Safi harmful effects…. do consult with your doc!! Take care!


Fire Crystals September 17, 2011 at 12:41 am

I started using Erytop Liquid since 2001 when I was in College. And I’ve got to say that it was the best cure for my pimples. It came in a white bottle and was a colourless liquid. Great product. I am surprised that not many people know of it. It was recommended by a friend whose Mom was a doctor.


dollar September 17, 2011 at 12:52 am

hmmm thanx i m going to the chemist 2morrow……wud it work a a post acne marks…


Fire Crystals September 17, 2011 at 12:55 am

You know, not every chemist stocks it. So, you might have a tough time finding it…and then again, maybe not. And it works best when you have the acne, as it gets rid of the acne pretty fast and does not let it leave a scar.


bhumika September 17, 2011 at 1:00 am

hey meghana..I have been using the Erytop lotion from the last 4 years..but I use it only when I break great.. :yes: and I would suggest you try the lotion one…that never gave any dryness or roughness to the skin..

Nikita September 17, 2011 at 2:32 pm

acne on forehead is due to dandruff mostly.Just check if u have got might be the core reason.This product should work on your forehead ..wont reduce the marks though.

Hello Meghana….thanks for the review…I will search for this :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog:


Meghana September 17, 2011 at 1:28 pm

My pleasure 🙂


Visakhi September 17, 2011 at 11:12 am

Hi Meghana,
Nice review, I have used it too, and i completely agree that its very effective.
My father works in Pharma field, so i knw most of the medicines names and their effectiveness. This one is quite effective because of its chemical composition, its a strong medicine, its only for the acne purpose, its not advisable to use it all over the face, as u said its very drying too. Its always better to consult a dermo before using Erytop..


Neha S. September 17, 2011 at 11:29 am

wowww :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: i will also get this.. i used to hear a lot abt thi.. but i had adapelene at home.. so tried that only on pimples.. but it doent work much.. so now i think im ready to buy erytop.. i dont get much pimples .. but when i get, one also during periods it doesnt heal till more than a weak and leaves an ugly mark :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream:


Parita September 17, 2011 at 11:42 am

Me too getting this one asap! :yahoo: though i get hardly any pimples like 1 or 2 in a month but they take quite a long time to heal 🙁 hopefully this one should help me! :thanks: for the review!


Geeta September 17, 2011 at 11:45 am

totally in love with erytop. I’ve a lotion, works the same way n doesn’t dry my skin at all. True, its the best acne-remedy out there. gentle n effective.


Nikita September 17, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Clindamycin works on pimples well..this product has it.Its prescribed by most of th dermatlogist before adapaline or benzoyl peroxide.It definetly works but will be ineffective for scaring pimples(those which create undulations).Good that its worked for you :).


Geeta September 17, 2011 at 2:06 pm

hmm i had that experience..its good for well-behaved acne


Reshu September 17, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Nice review meghana 🙂


Amrita September 17, 2011 at 4:17 pm

hii Meghana your cream is similar to the one i use having clindamycin my one is Clindac Gel which is transparent n i can apply it at any time of the day on my pimples its not much harsh but it still works nicely on skin I guess all d docs prescribe clindamycin based gels next time i’ll buy erytop to find out if its better than my gel thanx for your review


kashish September 17, 2011 at 4:23 pm

i tried caladryl calamine lotion on my acne and they have reduced immensly. what do we do for pimple scars ?


nidhi October 17, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Try Persol Gel from Wallace, Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5 % has aloe vera in it and doesn’t irritate on application.

Good Luck 🙂


Alina December 28, 2011 at 10:59 am

Asma July 10, 2012 at 2:47 am

Could some one please suggest to me where I could purchase this cream from?I live in Dubai and often order acne products online but they never happen to reach me. Kindly let me know if this product is sold in UAE or if a reliable distributor could forward this to me as I am eager to get rid of my pimples and scars!

Many Thanks,


Ramya July 18, 2012 at 5:15 pm

I consulted a doctor to get rid of my pimples & black marks, he suggested me to use erytop gel for 3 months twice a day after washing the face with a mild soap / face wash. I used after bed and before bed and let it for just an hour and wash it away in plain water. After one month i saw better results from it. Now I don’t have any black marks. I took the treatment after finishing my college. College friends who met me later asked me, Where have the black spots gone. How it worked? I was very happy. It worked well on my face.. But don’t use it blindly, first consult a doctor before using any chemicals on your face.


rox January 18, 2013 at 1:56 pm

do we need doctors consultation before using erytop.


zainab khumri May 25, 2013 at 6:29 am
