What is Pernex Ac?

Pernex AC is an effective antiseptic treatment for vulgaris acne (a common form of acne). It contains benzoyl peroxide. It helps to prevent spots and pimples from appearing to leave you with clearer skin.

Pernex AC is a branded medication and it’s also available as Bengel AC, Ronimide, Acnox, Cansol, Benzac AC, and Oxiben. All these treatments work to treat acne in the same way, but their appearance may differ due to branding.

Pernex AC is applied to the face using the fingers and comes in gel form. Your doctor will tell you how long to use it for. Improvements in the amount of spots and pimples is usually noticeable within a few weeks of use.

How does Pernex Ac work?

Acne is caused by bacteria becoming clogged in the pores on your face. Pores are there to help remove dead skin cells from the face and this is done with the help of an oily substance called sebum. When the pores become blocked sebum builds up and bacteria starts to grow. This is what gives pimples their inflamed appearance and also the ‘white head’ that you associate with acne.

Acne affects over 30% of the population in India and is most common in the 20–29 year age group with over 12% of people this age suffering from acne caused by pores blocked with sebum.

Pernex AC contains benzoyl peroxide. This kills the bacteria that causes acne and so prevents it from clogging the pores. This helps to treat pimples that are already present and also to prevent new ones from occurring.

Benzoyl peroxide also helps to remove the dead skin cells that leave the body through the pores and this prevents the pores from becoming blocked.

Its anti-inflammatory properties also reduce the redness on the skin that’s associated with acne.

Acne can have a negative affect on mental health and can leave people feeling depressed and unwilling to socialise due to low self-confidence.

What doses of Pernex Ac are there?

Pernex AC comes in two dosage sizes: 2.5% and 5%. These are both gels and the percentage shows how much of the active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, is in the gel.

After looking at your acne and talking to you about your symptoms, health and medical history your doctor will be able to advise you about the best dose for you to start on. It’s common to start on the lower dose and then increase the dose if the treatment isn’t effective.

Pernex AC doesn’t work for everyone and in rare cases it may cause some mild side effects. If this is the case, your doctor will be able to explore alternative treatments for you to try.

How to take Pernex Ac

Always use Pernex AC exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

You will usually be told to:

  • clean and dry the affected area before applying Pernex AC
  • apply Pernex AC with the hands
  • apply in line with your doctor’s advice

If you’re unsure about how to use Pernex AC you can look at the patient information leaflet that is supplied with it. If you still have questions or need more guidance you can log into your Treated account and send us a message.

How long does it take Pernex Ac to work?

The length of time that you need to take Pernex AC for will depend on the severity of your acne and how well you respond to the treatment.

When prescribing Pernex AC, your doctor will be able to advise you about how long to take it for. Your progress and response will be monitored and changes made where needed.

You should start to see some positive results within a few weeks of starting treatment.

Studies show that treatments like Pernex AC can resolve acne within 12 weeks. After this time it is advisable to continue treatment in order to maintain control of acne and the bacteria that causes it.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Pernex Ac?

If you apply too much Pernex AC to your skin you may experience some skin irritation. If this occurs you should wash the gel from your skin and wait for the irritation to calm down before applying any more.

FAQ: Pernex Ac

Have something specific you want to know about Pernex Ac? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Pernex Ac different to other Acne treatments?

Answer:
Unlike some other acne treatments, Pernex AC addresses the root cause of acne by fighting the bacteria that causes it. It treats the spots that you already have and helps to prevent new ones from appearing.

Is Pernex Ac similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Pernex AC is a branded treatment and it’s similar to other treatments such as Bengel AC, Ronimide, Acnox, Cansol, Benzac AC, and Oxiben. Although all of these treatments work in the same way and contain the same active ingredient, they may differ in appearance due to branding.

Which dose of Pernex Ac should I use?

Answer:
The amount of Pernex that you need to use, along with the dosage size you should start with, will be decided by your doctor. After looking at your skin and acne and talking to you about your health and medical history, your doctor will be able to tell you which dose is best for you to try.

If you find that the treatment isn’t effective you can talk to your doctor again and discuss increasing the dose or trying a different treatment.

How effective is Pernex Ac?

Answer:
Pernex AC is a highly effective treatment for acne that helps to clear existing spots and prevent others from developing.

Clinical studies show that benzoyl peroxide - the active ingredient in Pernex AC - can reduce the number of spots in a treated area by upto 21% in as little as eight weeks. With continued treatment, this percentage rises and the risk of acne recurring is reduced.

Do I need a prescription for Pernex Ac?

Answer:
Yes. A doctor needs to prescribe Pernex AC because they need to check that it’s suitable for you to take.

A doctor also needs to monitor your reaction to Pernex AC in case you are sensitive to it and need to find an alternative treatment for acne.

Pernex AC may not work in the same way for everyone and this is why a doctor needs to monitor its use. If it doesn’t suit you, your doctor will help you to explore other treatment options that might be better suited to you and that will be more effective at treating your acne.
