Differin works from the inside out as an exfoliate.
Aczone works from the outside in as an antibacterial - it is also anti-inflammatory.

I'm on day 7 of using Differin 0.1% creme at night and Aczone 5% in the morning.
The zits I had before - have cleared.
The Differin is bringing out new ones (as expected) but the Aczone keeps them calm.

I'm tempted to just forget the Differin, but I understand its purpose.
I don't just want the Aczone to clear what I currently have - I want the Differin to bring out what I can't see (treat the underlying issue that is causing the acne) - and have the duo clear all of it for good.

Try Aczone! Good luck!

I only have experience with the combo of Differin (at night) and Aczone (in the morning) with sulfur wash at night and Cetaphil in the morning.
I imagine that Aczone would be useful as an antibacterial/anti-inflammatory with a product like proactiv - but mixing any drug, including topicals, is iffy.
Asking a dermatologist is certainly the best option.

Good luck!

My skin is looking much better. So much better. My current zits are small - with hard/dried puss - nothing like the large pustules I had two weeks ago. In fact - I'm pretty much down to mild scarring. Most of the new zits are forming in the scar tissue. I figure that'll stop happening once the Differin exfoliates the scar tissue away. Without the scarring - I've gone from moderate/severe acne to mild/moderate acne in a little over 2 weeks. The biggest improvement though has been my state of mind. I don't think about it so obsessively now. Don't know why exactly. Maybe because it cleared enough to give me confidence that it'll run its course - that it's not forever.

I'm shouting the praises of Differin and Aczone and the Sulfur wash in combo. I also think the hair/skin/nails vitamin has helped healing the process. My hair and nails grow like crazy - so I can only assume it's helping my skin heal. Give it a shot if you're not currently taking one. Can't hurt!

Good luck!
