Clindamycin And Retin A

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys. So I made this account because after two years of struggling with prescription acne meds, nothing has significantly improved. I currently use a Clyndamycin lotion and a .1% Retin-A cream, at day and night respectively. I also use Aczone cream for spot treating, and use a Neutrogena Acne Wash Redness Soothing day and night. However, i still get frequent whiteheads and i have lots of red spots from previous pimples that have not disappeared, especially in the cheek region below the eyes. I've been on this regimen for about 2 months now, but I just recently had a massive breakout, so I'm just wondering, what am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?

I recently switched to the Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser, which uses benzoyl peroxide instead of sacylic acid which my other cleanser used. I'm a couple days in and I'm still getting frequent pimples, but I'll see if I see any improvement in the next couple weeks
