Before I hit freshman year, I had great skin, and a few months ago it started getting worse than I ever imagined. My dermatologist gave me samples of this a week ago and she said it would take a while to kick in plus it would get worse before it got better. I've been taking it for the past week and it's already getting better! On the third day, my face burned a little, but I used cetaphil ... Show Full Comment

Epiduo works, but only in repetition. At first I only applied the gel to my nose and ares where I had a zit. I'm also on Bactrim DS, which kept my skin very clear, but I was getting a lot of those small little bumps that take a lot of squeezing to get rid of. I went back to my derm and talked to him, he said that every night I need to spread a layer of the gel all over my face or the the ares ... Show Full Comment

This stuff is great but I wish it wasn't so expensive. I've used Retin-A liquid or cream and glycolic acid 7% every night for over 30 years, so when I started breaking out again,my derm said I just needed a change of meds. Epiduo burns, stings & causes dryness at first but wow, even my deep wrinkles are smoothing out after only a few weeks. I also take tetracycline 500mg once a day.

I went to a new derm who prescribed Epiduo for me after my last derm had given me Differn which had cause my occasional breakout to become a war zone of acne like never before. I've been using the product for about a month and a half-once at night just before bed and all I can say is that it works great. I have never had any irritations or discomfort. My derm paired this medicine along with ... Show Full Comment
