Nicam 4% Gel

Nicam 4% Gel
treats inflamed pimples and spots, known as mild to moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris, which occurs mainly on the face, back and chest. The active ingredient is nicotinamide, which has an anti-inflammatory action that reduces swelling, redness and tenderness. Nicotinamide is not an antibiotic, it is related to an essential vitamin in our diet (Vitamin B3)

Nicam 4% Gel is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly
and is not known to affect, or to be affected by, any other medicines.


Adults, children and the elderly: Apply the gel twice daily over and around the affected skin areas:
  • Wash the area.
  • Gently pat the skin dry (avoid rubbing as this may aggravate the skin).
  • Apply a thin film of gel, and gently massage it in.
Continue using the gel twice daily in this way for as long as necessary, (unless irritation occurs). Depending on the severity of your acne, it can take several weeks for the skin's normal repair process to work before you see a real improvement in your skin, so it is important to persevere with treatment.


  • Active Ingredient: Nicotinamide 4% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Aluminium Magnesium Silicate, Hypromellose, Citric Acid Anhydrous, Macrogol Lauryl Ether, Ethanol Anhydrous and Purified Water.


Do not use Nicam Gel if:
  • You are allergic (hypersensitive) to nicotinamide or any of the other ingredients of Nicam Gel.
Take care when using Nicam Gel:
  • Only apply it to your skin.
  • When using it on your face, keep it away from your eyes, and avoid getting it inside your nostrils, on your lips or inside your mouth.
  • Depending on how sensitive your skin tends to be, it may be a good idea initially to test the gel on a small area, and wait 24 hours before using it on larger areas. This is especially advisable if you have unusually sensitive skin or if you are treating the face (as generally applies when using any new treatment for the first time).
  • There are no specific restrictions to using Nicam during pregnancy or breastfeeding, however, although there are no known potential risks, as with any medicine caution should be exercised, particularly in the first three months of pregnancy.
Speak to your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.
