Hey everyone! I just wanna know if i should stick with Epiduo or not.
I've used differin before,no irritation etc. it cleared me up but after 2-3 years of not using any medication my acne came back and the differin starts to make my face red and dry and flaky. my derm prescribed epiduo i started using it around valentines day this year ,february 14, 2014.
Facial Cleanser : Mild Hyaluronic Acid Foaming Facial Wash, prescribed by my derm
Moisturizer: Moisturizer from my derm's skin care line.
i used it every third night then moistiurizer after 15 minutes. my face was red and dry and flaky.
i started using it every other night then moisturizer after. still red dry flaky peeling and sometimes itchy especially at night when im sleeping. been applying moisturizer three times a day cause it so dry and red peeling and tight.
use it everynight with moisturizer right after. really red, dry, flaky, tight, moisturizer helps a lot that i can move my face without cracking but still uncomfortable.
i'm on the 5th day of my fourth week now and still really red,dry, flaking, etc.
im not sure if i should continue using it. they say it takes month for those side effects to go away. im really going crazy. i really want this med to work.
What do you guys think? should i stick with it? ive seen how adapelene works so i don't want to give up on it this time but the irritation is really freaking me out. i can't go anywhere because of how i look. the Initial breakout isn't bothering me that much .... yet but the irritation is.
Any comments and answers will be appreciated. Thanks!
