How Does Lymecycline Work?

Lymecycline is an excellent choice for people who experience acne in other body areas apart from the face. Since it is taken orally, it treats bacteria in the body, preventing pimples and spots all over. The skin produces sebum through the sebaceous glands. Bacteria feed on sebum, causing a build-up of waste and fatty acids that block pores. This causes the scarring inflammation that causes acne.  Lymecycline contains tetracycline antibiotics. It works by inhibiting a protein that causes bacteria to grow and reproduce. The bacteria die, relieving skin of inflammation and infections.


Lymecycline Warnings

Lymecycline is unsuitable for you if you have the following conditions.
  • You have had kidney disease.
  • You are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
  • You have an impaired liver or kidney function.
  • You suffer from systemic lupus erythematosus.


Lymecycline Dosage

  • Take one capsule daily, preferably in the morning, with a full glass of water for at least 8-12 weeks. 
  • If your treatment has been effective, you can continue to take Tetralysal for another three months, where you should see further improvement. 
  • If there has been no improvement in your acne, you should stop taking Tetralysal and consider a different acne treatment.
  • Use Tetralysal with a non-antibiotic topical treatment for best results
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight or artificial sunlight from sunbeds while using Lymecycline.
