Hey guys,

So I've been using epiduo for a few months now, and I've recently started using clindamycin-benzoyle peroxide gel as well.
Both of them say that I should apply a thin film to the "affected area" - what exactly does this mean? Should I be applying it to my entire face?
I've just been using it on active zits when they pop up, and A. This isn't extremely effective and B. This doesn't seem like a good way to reduce my acne over time. I mean, a zit on my chin doesn't know that I applied a spot of epiduo to my forehead, right?

What exactly should I be doing?

Thanks a bunch!

I'm also prescribed hte clindamycin-BP gel, and I was told by my derm to apply to the entire face. It's half antibiotic half BP, so I think it's safe to assume that it treats, as well as prevents new acne from forming.
