My son has been on the medication Epiduo for 5 days. His acne is 50% worse, many more pustules, papules than when he started. I am reading that this is to be expected but it is hard to take. Hopefully in 4 weeks things look better. he is also taking doryx.

My child started this treatment a month before prom. He had "pizza" face. It was an amazing transformation. and he felt great at prom. Now with cleaning and maintenance it seems to be under control except for stressful times, he gets a breakout. We are both pleased with the treatment.
