Drug information for nicotinamide gel
Medication Information: Acne or pimples are common spots. Most people with acne are between the ages of 12 and 25, but some are younger or older. There are small sebaceous glands under your skin that make an oil called sebum that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Small pores on your skin allow sebum to reach the surface of your skin. In pimples, some of these pores become blocked, causing inflamed blackheads or whiteheads. Nicotinamide gel has an anti-inflammatory effect and is useful for treating acne.
