Erythromycin And Differinretinoids
Posted 08 February 2012 - 05:37 AM
About a year ago I was prescribed Lymecycline. This slightly improved the state of my skin, however, after lengthy use it was having less of an effect so I was prescribed other drugs by my doctor. Since the end of December I have been taking four 250mg Erythromycin tablets a day (2 in the morning & 2 at night) along with the use of Differin cream (0.1% w/w). In the first week my spots cleared up spectacularly, however, since then they have gradually come back and this week I have had a horrendous break-out of spots on my forehead and one next to my nose. Considering that I've only been on the two products for 5/6 weeks, is this normal and if so, how long can I expect this breakout of spots to last?
Also, how has everyone else found Erythromycin, particularly when used with Differin cream?
Thanks in advance!

Yes, I am in the UK. I've been using Clean & Clear's exfoliating wash before applying Differin but I'm definitely open to other suggestions!

I have been on erythromycin tablets for 4 weeks and have been using differin for just over 2 weeks. My skin keeps looking like its clearing up and then breaking out again a few days later. I am just wondering if you stuck with the medications and whether they worked eventually for you? I am thinking of getting a new antibiotic and maybe changing to the differin gel as I also have the greasiness problem. Any advice would be appreciated! thank you.
