Acne Treatments

Order Your Prescription Online

If you suffer from acne and over-the-counter products don’t work, get free advice from one of our doctors.

Fill out our short questionnaire and upload two photos. Our doctors will then advise you on whether the prescription acne cream Differin or an antibiotic treatment with tetralysal may help you.

Once our doctor has approved your order, you will be sent your prescription via post.

Your Superdrug Online Doctor prescription allows you to buy your prescription acne treatment at any pharmacy in Ireland.

Complete our free assessment and our doctors will let you know which of our products can help you.

How our service works

  • Complete a short questionnaire about your health.
  • A Superdrug Online Doctor will write back to you to let you know which treatments are suitable for you.
  • You will then be able to select and pay for your prescription.
  • Orders received before 4pm will be processed the same day. Orders received after 4pm will be processed the next working day.
  • Once your prescription has been dispatched, you will receive it within 3-5 working days.

Side effects from the antibiotics we offer are rare but can include: 

  • nausea
  • diarrhoea
  • skin rashes

There are lots of products available over-the-counter in your local pharmacy that may help treat your acne. You should try these products before trying a prescription-only medicine.

Your GP should be able to give you further advice about other treatments for your acne.
