  • Neo-Medrol Acne Lotion

    recently i bought this Nep-Medrol Acne Lotion, which also known as the Topical Antibiotic Glucocorticoid Acne Compound.

    Each mL contains: methylprednisoloneacetate 2.5mg (0.25%)
    neomycin sulfate 2.5mg
    colloidal sulsuf 50mg
    aluminium chlorhydroxide complex 100mg

    i tried to search for the infomation of the ingredients.. but i am still very lost. not too sure if this ingredients are good for the skin.

    comparing the ingredients, is Neostrata a better choice? or this current one is already good enough?

    sorry for asking so many questions, but i really hope that someone who are familiar with this kind of stuffs can fork out sometime to answer my questions... =)

    I used Neo Medrol for a while, when my company still paid for it! Now they want to charge me $38 for that small bottle Anyway, it smells bad, but works! Not that drying for me either. I've not tried Neostrata, so cannot compare.

          i got this from DRX at china sq too when i was breaking out. it worked pretty well on me and i've passed it to another cotter after my pimples calmed down. good stuff but not potent enough to shrivel the pimple in an instant.

            I paid about $16+ IIRC from Dr Tan but that was many years ago.

              I used this before, prescribed by a GP. It smelled bad maybe because of the sulphur content? But it worked for a while for me. Later on, I stopped using it because I saw more bumps surfacing out & it caused ugly redness on my skin after each application.

                I bought mine at $50 from a GP. He used to sell to me $10 for a very small bottle. Finally now selling me the original bottle( 30ml). It really works very well for me too! Your place charging you $38 for the original bottle?? Then can u tell me where is your place? Thanks

                        think she is selling $14 for a really small bottle. didnt ask abt the big bottle though.

                        i think it works too but the effect is losing on me so i don't find it effective anymore.

                            Try getting it from Bangkok.. its wayyy much cheaper.. like less than $20 for a full-sized original bottle.

                            It worked for me but it takes time to calm those huge angry zits but for small ones, it's good.
