I have been using epiduo for a few days now and have noticed peeling skin in one area. Should i keep applying epiduo on this area of peeling ?

You should just apply a moisturizer that will help with the peeling and dry flaky skin. I suggest you use Cetaphil moisturizer cream and this cream goes between $9-13. There is a $1 off coupon off their site if you do decide to buy it.

I myself used epiduo and after 2-3 weeks of using it my skin was less dry and flaky. I also use the cetaphil moisturizer.

Hey! I am on day 6 of using epiduo and my skin is peeling as well! It's completely normal, it's a good thing in fact! New skin is working its way through :) I too, recommend cetaphil, or cerave am and pm, that's what I use. Both are great! I hope you have success with epiduo and fingers crossed for us!!!

Thank you! I also hope it works out. I think i am seeing some improvement.

How long do you wait to moisturize after applying Epiduo?
And Do you moisturize both morning and night?

Good I'm glad! Idk if I have seen improvement, but I have only been using it 1 week so far. I wash my face in the morning with dove soap, pat dry, wait 10 minutes and then apply cerave lotion. At night, I wash with dove, rinse, pat dry, wait 10 minutes to apply epiduo then wait 30 minutes then cerave!!

Its weird because if I dont put moisturize after putting on epiduo my face doesn't sting. When I do put moisturize on after epiduo, it burns like crazy. I wonder if anyone else gets this.
