FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: EPIDUO

User Comments:

For Acne “When my skin began to scar at age 24 with acne break outs I just about had enough! Tried a few different creams like duac (awful), my doctor recently suggested antibiotic treatment combined with the Epiduo cream. He told me to apply it at night time lightly, after the first two days myself and my family/friends could see the changes. If I use it too often it does dry out my skin but I alternate 1 night epiduo 1 night moisturiser and I use a light exfoliater twice a week!! Moral of the story don’t use it too often and be patient!!”

For Acne “Don’t waste your money. Made my skin dry and hyperpigmented patches. My neck became really itchy, red, scaly, dry and irritated. I have dark patches on my neck now. It is worse than before! My skin was 10x better before I started using Epiduo. Not worth your time and money.”

For Acne “Epiduo completely dried out my skin. I guess to clear acne you need to remove the oils which is what it did. But it burned my skin and left me in pain for days. Redness and aching dried out skin.”

For Acne “My Dermatologist recommended Epiduo for my acne. Tried everything but nothing worked for me. Finally this came to me as a rescue. My Doctor adviced like this:Apply moisturiser- Episoft first at nightThen apply Epiduo as spot treatment.First two days, leave it for one hour and wash it off.Increase to two hours the next few days there by slowly making your skin to adopt to the gel.Gradually increase the time and leave it over night.By this way, my skin didn’t become dry and red which is the nature of Epiduo.Thanks to my Doctor for making my skin acne free. This cream won’t do magic over night. Patience needed!!”

For Acne “Please don’t get confused with a purge and a reaction. I used this for about three months which brought out a huge cluster of painful cystic acne on my cheeks thinking it was a purge, which ended up making my acne 10x worse and left me with stubborn hyperpigmentation and scars that I’m now on roaccutane to solve. Got rid of my forehead and chin spots almost immediately with no “purge” which I think is the normal way this cream should work, otherwise I’d stop using”

For Acne “My only regret is not using Epiduo sooner. I was given antibiotics from my doctor to help clear my breakouts and each time I got off of them, the breakouts would come back. I didn’t know what to do until I went to a dermatologist. I was fed up with antibiotics but he set me up with a plan to go on antibiotics for 6 months more months but while using epiduo. Eventually I weaned off the antibiotics and continued my use with epiduo. It’s 6 months later and my skin is still amazing! Epiduo saved me from using accutane.”
