Application of STREPTOkill for acne
Soak a cotton swab or cloth in Streptokill which you have sprayed into a small glass, and then rub the acne gently with it.
Using the oral spray applicator to spray Streptokill directly onto the acne is not recommended, to avoid having Streptokill come into contact with the eyes. If this does happen, flush the eyes immediately with clean water. The frequency of application is not limited; it may therefore be said that the more frequent the applications, the quicker and better the results.
